Our Work

Grand Plan

1. Information Sharing: (1) Sharing resource information directly related to STEM for BLV in different countries on this website; and (2) Building a global community through sharing information and exchanging ideas on virtual platforms. 2. STEM Education: (1) Developing research-based STEM instructional plans that incorporate the Expanded Core Curriculum; and (2) Implementing the developed instructional plans in the countries that participate in the network. PS. The Expanded Core Curriculum (ECC) is a set of concepts and skills that are taught to BLV students to support their learning that often occurs incidentally with vision. 3. STEM Careers: (1) Developing STEM career training programs through collaboration with existing organizations; and (2) Implementing the developed training programs in the countries that participate in the network.

Preliminary Work

  • To build a global community through sharing resources: Compared to many other fields, STEM for BLV is a small one. So often, resources directly related to STEM for BLV are in different places, and thus, they are not easy to be found. One of our missions is to gather and provide resource information from different countries on this website for interested parties to access more easily.

  • To advance the field of STEM for BLV through exchanging ideas: As a growing field, it is crucial to know what has been done and what others are thinking and doing in the field. Our forum, which is visible to the public and accessible to all users, serves this purpose for interested parties to exchange ideas that are directly related to STEM for BLV.
