Welcome to the free, self-paced courses available through Project INSPIRE: Increasing the STEM Potential of Individuals Who Read Braille—a 5-year grant funded by the US Department of Education, Office of Special Education and Rehabilitative Services (H235E190003). Twice a year we will add additional courses so please check back for additional courses.
Our free, self-paced courses are for TVIs, paraprofessionals, those who prepare braille, and others who want to support braille learners. Twice a year we will be adding additional courses so please check back for additional courses.
The following courses are available:
As part of Project INSPIRE’s commitment to increase STEM braille literacy we have designed Nemeth in a Box for Middle School Students.
Nemeth in a Box is seven lessons that teachers of students with visual impairments (TSVIs) or others (e.g., paraprofessionals, family members) can use to review and/or introduce Nemeth Code symbols at the middle level and review math concepts in a fun way.
In April and May we have a group of budding rocket scientists (ages 11-15) taking part in Mission INSPIRE. This online STEM Bowl Event is hands-one math and science learning. Stay tuned to learn more about our rocket scientists experiences.
