March 29, 2017
Mona Minkara, a chemistry professor at the University of Minnesota in the United States is working to create a STEM curriculum for blind children in developing countries.
STEM refers to the disciplines of science, technology, engineering and mathematics.Minkara wants the syllabus to be accessible to the blind and of low-cost. It will be implemented at a camp in Lebanon that has programs for both blind and sighted children.
The camp trains blind children in life skills and integrates them with sighted children through sports and artistic activities.
Minkara said that most syllabus that is accessible to the blind is expensive and she wants to translate visual science experiments into something blind students can understand.
