Independence Science seeks to promote the full integration of students who are blind or have low vision (BLV) into hands-on science laboratory learning experiences. Traditionally, students with BLV are paired with a sighted counterpart to serve as their eyes in the laboratory. Although this approach can be effective at completing laboratory course requirements, it does not instill in the mind of the student with BLV that they can perform these tasks independently.
Independence Science actively seeks partnerships with science education technology companies, access technology firms, and other educational researchers that are interested in opening doors of opportunity for students who are blind or have other disabilities in the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) fields of study.
Independence Science is committed to building equity in the STEM classroom through the development of new innovative access technology solutions. We are working to open more doors of opportunity in the science laboratory and other areas of STEM.
There is significant under-representation of the blind and persons with other disabilities in STEM. A more inclusive STEM workforce is to the advantage of everyone.
John F. Kennedy spoke about the importance of science as he launched the space race to go to the moon in his speech at Rice Stadium in Houston, TX in the fall of 1962.
