AccessCSforAll Participating in Video Showcase

Brianna Blaser, DO-IT Staff

For the fourth year, AccessCSforAll will participate in the STEM for All Video Showcase. The Showcase, which runs from May 14-21 will highlight work being done by federally-funded programs to transform STEM education. This year, the AccessCSforAll submission will bring attention to including students with disabilities in K-12 computer science education by highlighting a blind student programming a robot using Blocks4All. Blocks4All, developed by UW (University of Washington) CSE (computer science and engineering) graduate student Lauren Milne, explores techniques to make block-based programming accessible to students who are blind.

Last year’s AccessCSforAll video Quorum: An Accessible Programming Language won a Facilitator’s Choice award.
