Science, Mathematics, Engineering, and Technology (STEM) classes are highly visual in nature, which can be a barrier for students with blindness and visual impairments (BVI). Providing teachers and educators with a resource of technologies and adaptions that utilize various senses can assist in creating a more inclusive classroom environment. A multisensory approach to STEM education can improve the academic success for all students, regardless of ability. In addition, allowing students with BVI the opportunity to actively participate in STEM activities, concepts, and experiments can increase engagement and promote the continuation to higher education in the field.
