Sign Up by Tomorrow – LightHouse Youth Program, the Exploratorium and NFB Team up for a Weekend of Science this Spring

Young Tino Benneli and Andre Berardi face off during a Battle-Bot competition, part of the robotics segment of our recent TouchSTEM session at Enchanted Hills.
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.

What: NFB STEM2U San Francisco
When: March 3-5, 2016
Where: Exploratorium, San Francisco
