NFB STEM2U

STEM2U brings nonvisual accessible science, technology, engineering, and mathematics activities to blind youth.

The National Federation of the Blind works to improve opportunities for blind students in the areas of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). 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!
