VICTA is a national charity that provides support to children and young adults from 0 to 29 who are blind or partially sighted and their families. VICTA believes that everyone has the right to an independent and fulfilling life. VICTA’s support, advice, grants and activities enable young people and their families to build skills, develop confidence and help each other toward a more positive future.
We are developing an Online Science Fair for visually impaired children and young adults to coincide with British Science Week in March 2021. Science and STEM generally are not easily accessible for those with a vision impairment.
We are looking for students in all areas of STEM that would like to support us in content creation and delivery of the science fair with accessibility for visually impaired users (children and young adults) at the forefront.
The Online Science Fair will follow a similar model to our successful Summer Festival: https://www.victa.org.uk/festival/
2 hours per week
