Event description
Creating science that is accessible and engaging for young people with sensory impairments.

About this Event

In the last few years, a number of projects in the Faculty of Science and Engineering have aimed to make science accessible and engaging for young people with sensory impairments. In this session, you can find out about the outcomes and learnings from these activities, get hands-on with some of the tactile resources that have been developed, and learn how you can get involved with some accessible science shows planned for summer 2020. Robyn Watson, a teacher of visually-impaired and hearing-impaired children, will present on how to develop and adapt engagement activities for this audience. Note: This session is not limited to those in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math - it is open to all disciplines and staff and students across the University.
