Calling all blind students, parents of blind 
children, and teachers working with blind students!

During the 2015-2016 school year, the 
<http://www.nfb.org>National Federation of the 
Blind will facilitate three science, technology, 
engineering, and math (STEM) programs across the 
country as a part of its 
Center for Blind Youth in Science! 
STEM2U will provide exciting accessible STEM 
learning opportunities for blind students in 
grades 3-6 and grades 9-12. Parents and teachers 
will also have the opportunity to join in the fun and learning!

Program Dates:
·       NFB STEM2U Phoenix (AZ); November 5-7, 2015
·       NFB STEM2U San Francisco (CA); March 3-5, 2016
·       NFB STEM2U Minneapolis (MN); May 19-21, 2016
·       NFB STEM2U Leadership Academy; October 
2-4, 2015 (a special event for high school students)

Blind and low-vision students (and their parents 
and teachers) who are looking for more 
opportunities to learn about STEM and to have fun 
with their peers from across the country should apply to attend NFB STEM2U.


Application periods will close in late summer; 
don’t miss your opportunity to apply!

If you have questions, please contact Natalie 
Shaheen by email at <mailto:STEM at nfb.org>STEM at nfb.org.
