Hi all,

Can you kindly forward the message below to your network. Thanks.

Dear Colleagues,

Dr. Sunggye Hong and Dr. Steve Kortenkamp are recruiting students with
visual impairments for a unique study!  The purpose of the study is to
expose students who are blind or have low vision to STEM careers
through project based learning, mentorship and interaction with
scientists who already are engaged in STEM careers, and university
science students.  This National Science Foundation sponsored study
will help students explore the latest research on the planet Mars,
scrutinizing findings from NASA spacecraft, learning about the largest
volcanoes in the solar system, investigating fossilized shorelines of
ancient Martian oceans, and much more!

The purpose of this project is for students with visual impairments to
raise awareness and to provide experiences necessary to pursue STEM
subjects and careers. We plan to use Project-Based Learning
Opportunities and dual-tiered mentoring experience as a means to
achieve this goal. Industry mentors with visual impairments will serve
an important role in this process. You will share your experiences,
discuss necessary credential, and identify significant technology
options. You will serve as a role model for students with visual
impairments and to assist students with visual impairments as they
complete their assignments.

Industry mentors should:

(a) have a visual impairment; (b) be employed in a STEM-related field in the US;

and (c) agree to give a minimum of three hours of time per month to the project.

We would like to talk to you if you are interested in participating in
this study. The initial interview will take approximately 30 minutes
and will be conducted over the phone. We will determine your
eligibility during this interview as well as provide additional
information about the study.

There is no risk for participation in this study. To participate in
this study, please send your email address and phone number that will
be used for the initial interview. One of the research team members
will setup a meeting with you.

Contact Dr. Sunggye Hong at
sghong at email.arizona.edu<mailto:sghong at email.arizona.edu> or
520-621-0945 for more information.

Thanks for your time!
