The Youth Slam is a biennial program in its third year that gives blind high school students a week-long college immersion experience focused on exciting STEM (Sience Technology Engineering & Math) subjects like Forensics, Kineseology, Computer Science, Robotics, journalism, Rocketry, Architecture, Environmental Science, and a taste of driving via the Blind Driver Challenge.
Students will spend a school week in the dorms at Towson University from July 17-23, 2011, under the guidance of competent blind mentors, dining in the dining hall, navigating campus to get to classes, engaging in challenging and learningful academic activities, and getting a taste of independent college life, including fun evening activities.
Spaces are filling, but applications are still being accepted through March 1st. More info about Youth Slam and the application process can be found at www.blindscience.org.
