Science Technology for Students with Visual Impairments (Behind the scenes at Perkins) by

Kate Fraser teaches science at Perkins School for the Blind in Watertown, MA where she has seen the evolution of technology to include data collection and analysis tools from Independence Science.

“STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) education is important for ALL students, and for students at Perkins it opens up a number of careers that would not be possible.”

This behind the scenes interview briefly explains the value of Sci-Voice Access Software and the tools used in the science classroom for students to better understand science concepts through hands-on education. Featured in the video is the Talking LabQuest and Logger Pro Lab Access Solutions for students who are blind or visually impaired.
