International Network of STEM for BLV

Join this global group!

Students, educators and professionals are all buzzing about STEM. “Why is STEM important in the classroom? STEM-based education teaches children more than science and mathematics concepts. The focus on hands-on learning with real-world applications helps develop a variety of skills sets, including creativity and 21st century skills.” – National Inventors Hall of Fame

With the vision to create a world where blind and low vision students and adults have full access to STEM education and careers, a new group has evolved: The International Network of STEM for BLV.

The International Network for STEM for BLV is building a global community to share STEM-related resources and to advance the field of STEM for BLV through exchanging ideas.

The first International Network for STEM for BLV newsletter is now available!
