The National Federation of the Blind works to improve opportunities for blind students in the areas of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). NFB STEM2U, brings nonvisual accessible STEM lessons and activities to blind youth. Students of varying ages across the country will learn fundamental nonvisual tools and techniques they can use to pursue further education and careers in STEM.
In collaboration with the Center of Science and Industry (COSI), we will become astronomers through the study of astrophysics and engineering. Join us to build models of the James Webb Space Telescope, learn about the Earth’s atmosphere, discover why the Webb was sent to space, and explore how it studies space. STEM can be accessible; let us show you how!
Coming soon in the spring or summer of 2024 to a city near you. This program is free to participating families. NFB STEM2U programs available in participating states are listed below as they become available. Check back soon for more programs and navigate to each state’s page to learn more about their program.
Who Should Attend
This program is designed for blind and low-vision students who:
- Are interested in STEM
- Are unsure about STEM but interested in a fun program specific to blind students
- Are in need of hands-on, nonvisual skills training opportunities from blind role models

Due to the generous donation from General Motors (GM), blind students across the country will learn fundamental nonvisual tools and techniques they can use to pursue further education and careers in STEM. The members of the NFB are extremely grateful for this gift from General Motors (GM), which will truly help blind students live the lives they want.
