About SciAccess 2021

About:

The SciAccess Initiative is excited to announce a new partnership with Geneva Lake Astrophysics and STEAM (GLAS) Education, a leading non-profit in accessibility and education. GLAS has a strong history of disability advocacy in STEM, particularly as a key part of the $2.5M NSF award, “Innovators Developing Accessible Tools for Astronomy” (IDATA). The National Federation of the Blind (NFB) recently recognized GLAS Education with the 2020 Bolotin Award, the highest honor granted by the NFB recognizing organizations that empower blind individuals to pursue their life goals. GLAS is currently acting as advisor/consultant on two NSF awards and a data sonification project with the Space Telescope Science Institute. Due to GLAS being based in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin, we are currently fundraising in order to host the 2021 SciAccess Conference in Wisconsin. This will be a hybrid event, welcoming guests to attend virtually or in-person. If you wish to support this effort, you can donate to our GoFundMe, or join our SciAccess Working Group!
