The National Center for Blind Youth in Science (NCBYS) was started by the National Federation of the Blind - Jernigan Institute to increase the opportunities and resources available to blind youth in STEM subjects and related careers. The website emphasizes the importance of participation and education of teachers and parents in increasing opportunities. Under the "For Students" tab near the top of the page, the welcome letter is a great guide on how to get involved in the acquisition of town science education. The "For Teachers and Parents" tab also has a welcome letter that, among other encouraging words, provides a link to Braille-ready files for MATHCOUNTS! (a math competition), as well as a link to a library of instructional videos "which...highlight proper tips and techniques for empowering blind students in the classroom." Finally, parents are guided to resources that offer low-tech and high-tech solutions in the "Resources" section of the website.
