Do you believe that careers and learning about fields such as Science, Technology, Engineering and Math- (STEM), are “too difficult” or “dangerous” for your blind child?

Do alternative techniques a blind person may use in such fields just baffle you?

If any of the above apply to you-

Please attend the Membership phone call, presented by the Membership Committee of the National Association of Blind Students. We are going to cover concerns, techniques, and general information about how blind students can participate on equal terms with their sighted peers, especially in STEM fields.

Date: Sunday, October 17, 2010

When: 6:00 pm EST

Where: NABS conference line- (712)775-7100 Code: 257963#.

Why: TO learn and network with other parents of blind children and blind students who have experiences navigating through the STEM fields for the blind.

Our special guest speaker, Arielle Silverman, earned her Bachelor’s degree from Arizona State University in Biology. She will offer a very distinct perspective on how to navigate through what can be perceived as the very turbulent waters of STEM. Different opportunity, techniques, strategies and concepts will be discussed during the call.

We look forward to talking with you!
