Visual Impairment & STEM

Lead Institution: University of Bath
Collaborating with: University of Southampton, Plymouth University, Royal Agricultural College, Loughborough University, London School of Economics

National Resources on VI

There are a number of websites and associated resources around access to Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) for those with a visual impairment. Many of these resources focus on assistive technology - essentially, any technology that may help those who have visual impairments in a STEM environment.

Much of the technology tends to be computer-based but specialist microscopes and other forms of electronic and handheld magnification can be included. Items that make it easier to work with scientific tools and any advice and guidance that has been found to be useful in STEM settings can also be considered as assistive technologies.

The articles and weblinks that can be accessed below should help any STEM practitioner in ensuring the inclusivity and accessibility of STEM courses.
