The National Federation of the Blind works to improve opportunities for blind students in the areas of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. NFB STEM2U, brings nonvisual accessible STEM lessons and activities to blind youth. The theme this year is space! Students of varying ages across the country will receive instruction from NFB personnel, blind mentors and expert instructors. 

Dates and Location

Our programing for 2023 has ended. Please check back soon for details regarding programs in 2024.

Who Should Attend

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


Registration for 2024 is not yet open.


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 GM, which will truly help blind students live the lives they want.
