This program is designed for blind and low-vision students in grades three to high school level who:

  • 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


Please complete the STEM2U registration form.


Due to the generous donation from General Motors, 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 GM, which will truly help blind students live the lives they want.
