High school students suggest ways to make science activities more accessible.
Students and faculty highlight academic programs at the University of Washington that provide effective learning environments for students with characteristics with respect to race, ethnicity, gender and disability.
The application of universal design principles can make libraries accessible to all visitors.
Educators and students tell how science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) activities can be made accessible and how students with disabilities can prepare for these fields.
Educators tell how Communication Access Realtime Translation (CART) provides access to auditory communication for individuals who are deaf.
Laboratory experiences are essential for students in many science courses. Students with disabilities will need to have access to the physical facility, equipment, materials, safety devices and other services. Access issues for students vary considerably depending on the subject, the physical facility, and their abilities and disabilities. For example, a student who is blind will be unable to use standard measurement equipment used in a chemistry or physics laboratory. A student with limited use of her hands may have difficulty manipulating lab tools and materials.
