We are thrilled to announce that Nevada is 1 of 15 states to be given the opportunity to participate in NFB STEM2U!
In NFB STEM2U, we are bringing what we have learned directly to students and families in their homes. Students of varying ages in fifteen states across the country will receive instruction from NFB personnel and expert instructors via the Zoom platform. November 14, 2020 from 11:00 AM to 2:00 PM PST. 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. There will be two tracks for the program based on grade and experience—basic and advanced. Each student registered for the 2020 NFB STEM2U program will be sent a box of materials containing everything they need to completely engage with the lesson. After the lesson, state coordinator, Regina Mitchell NFBNV Board Member and Southern Nevada Chapter President will connect with the students for additional interaction, in-depth discussion, and an exploration of additional avenues for STEM enrichment and learning. Full agenda coming soon! Please use our online application form to register for NFB STEM2U. This program is designed to include Braille, accessible tools, and digital content. If additional accommodations are needed, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
