Note: Deadline to apply for NFB STEM2U is tomorrow, January 5, 2016.
As part of a national grant to make science museums more accessible for the blind, the LightHouse will partner with the National Federation of the Blind (NFB) and the Exploratorium for three days of science for blind school students from around California.
To address the lack of blind youth entering technical careers, the LightHouse believes we need to start early. Earlier than previously thought possible. Parents of blind children in grades 3 to 6 may want to consider this introductory session which features fun activities and great mentorship opportunities.
The free NFB STEM2U program will provide exciting accessible STEM learning opportunities for blind students in grades 3-6. Parents will also have the opportunity to join in the fun and learning.
