Making STEM Education Accessible for All

STEM education is essential. It teaches logic and critical thinking. We use it in our everyday lives. And it is an integral part of a growing number of jobs. Despite its importance, many students are excluded from STEM education because of disabilities that prevent them from seeing and reading equations, tables, and images.

Benetech’s Bookshare library, the largest online library of accessible books, contains numerous STEM education titles, but our work making science, technology, engineering, and math accessible doesn’t stop there. We offer a suite of tools to help students and educators unlock STEM education: Math Editor, MathML Cloud, ImagesharePoet Image Description, 3D Printing.

We’re making STEM education more inclusive by providing learners with content that works for them.
