STEAM Career Showcase 2021 for Students with Disabilities

Connect with role models who have disabilities and who are thriving in STEAM careers!

The 9th annual STEAM Career Showcase for Students with Disabilities, a free virtual event for learners in grades 6–12, is an opportunity to connect with role models with disabilities who have thriving careers in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math (STEAM). Learn from the keynote speaker and panelists about their personal journeys and their strategies for success. Attendees will gain practical knowledge that they can apply to their interests and future career paths. 

This year’s keynote speaker is Brandon Winfield, the founder of iAccessLife, a mobile app that allows people with disabilities to rate, review and research accessible venues, such as restaurants, retails shops, grocery stores and more. Learn more about Brandon on the STEAM Career Showcase website; information about panelists will be available soon!
