Science camp for blind/VI kids

This is a really cool program for blind and VI kids to learn alternative techniques and science. The registration has just opened for next summer's program. If you're interested, I'd hurry up and get your application submitted. Good luck!

2011 NFB Youth Slam: A STEM Leadership Academy



It’s back! The third biennial NFB Youth Slam is slated to take place in the summer of 2011.




Registration is now open! Click here to apply.




Whether or not science or technology is “your thing,” there’s sure to be something for everyone. Learn the science behind building apps for your iPod, use cutting edge equipment and technology to determine chemical reactions in chemistry labs, build robots, or learn how to use nonvisual techniques to perform a real dissection! We guarantee this summer program will be like no other you’ve ever been to before!






One hundred and fifty blind and low vision students from all across the country will be selected to attend this five-day adventure that will engage, inspire, and encourage the next generation of blind youth to consider careers falsely believed to be impossible for the blind.
