Conclusion

Conclusion

Chen's insight:

In this project, I have learned many different things. But the most important of them, in my opinion, is the awareness for color blindness. I've learned about the difficulties people who suffer from color blindness are dealing with, and the way designers, teachers and other people can make it easier. 

I enjoyed choosing any topic I wanted, and learn about it.
