Egg-ceptional Collaboration: Miami Lighthouse for the Blind and Visually Impaired Hosts Beeping Easter Egg Hunt

Technology aids visually impaired children in Easter egg hunt

The Miami Lighthouse for the Blind and Visually Impaired hosted its annual Beeping Easter Egg Hunt at their Academy Playground. This event was made possible with the assistance of the South Florida Police Benevolent Association and Miami-Dade Police Department Bomb Squad, who ensured that all 45 participating students had fully functional beeping eggs.

Children with vision disabilities are often excluded from traditional activities like Easter egg hunts, but the Beeping Easter Egg Hunt allows both visually impaired students and those without disabilities to partake in the festive tradition together using their sense of hearing. In addition to the egg hunt, the students received Easter baskets and had the opportunity to interact with a police robot.

Virginia Jacko, President and CEO of the Miami Lighthouse for the Blind and Visually Impaired, expressed pride in organizing this event, emphasizing that it’s possible to see without sight. Steadman Stahl, President of the South Florida PBA, also expressed pride in sponsoring and supporting this event to ensure that all beeping eggs were fully functional.

The collaboration between these organizations allowed early learners and elementary school students at the Miami Lighthouse Academy to enjoy the excitement of finding Easter eggs. For more information about this organization, visit their website at miamilighthouse.org.
