2021 Poster - STEM Workforce Stories for Adolescents Who Are Deaf or Hard of Hearing (SWS)
This poster was presented at the 2021 NSF AISL Awardee Meeting.
Persons who are deaf or hard of hearing are underrepresented in the STEM workforce. A key factor is lack of awareness of STEM careers or of examples of STEM professionals. SWS has developed 8 video stories for viewing at home or while attending a boys and girls club. Evaluation will provide new knowledge about design, use, and potential impact of the stories on our audience’s interest in pursuing STEM and possibly a STEM career.
