Creating Inclusive STEM Opportunities for Students with Disabilities: Formal Settings

Event Date
Event Description

On April 11 and April 13, STELAR will host a two-part webinar series showcasing six ITEST projects’ work on designing inclusive STEM learning environments and opportunities for students with disabilities in both formal and informal settings. Each learning environment has different goals and challenges, yet both formal and informal learning environments demand dedicated teachers to design curriculum for students with disabilities and autism that can help address the exclusion that these students have traditionally experienced in the workforce.  Building STEM skills early on is essential to bridging these gaps by harnessing students’ skills and interests in STEM careers at a young age and offering transition supports.    

On April 11, ITEST project staff will share their work on creating inclusive STEM opportunities for students with disabilities in formal settings and share strategies used to provide supports for students and offer insights on how to address the struggles that this population faces with employment opportunities.
