National Center for Blind Youth in Science 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.

STEM Careers There are many groups and organizations in the United States working to encourage young people to enter STEM-related careers, and this website represents one of those endeavors. The STEM Career website was created by Professor Rich Feller of Colorado State University to help encourage young people to select just such a career path. The website contains updates on STEM career possibilities, and basic answers to questions like "Why STEM?" and "Why STEM Centric Career Development?" Visitors should also scan through the "STEM Disciplines" area on the homepage, as it contains resources about the job outlook for related STEM disciplines, such as biochemical engineering and engineering managers. Moving on, the site also features news updates from Professor Feller and his colleagues on subjects that include the ways in which corporations are promoting STEM education and women in STEM.
