DEDICATED TO IMPROVING THE LIVES OF BLIND AND VISUALLY IMPAIRED PEOPLE

Student Artists Can Have a STEAM-y Summer AND Get Paid!

The Baltimore Space Telescope Science Institute is seeking high school student artists, particularly those who are blind or visually impaired, for its Space Sonification High School Art summer program. “It can be music, animation, drawing, writing, dance…whatever you like. It just needs to be about sonification and something we can share with the world.” Accepted students must be available for weekly calls from July 23 to August 27. The institute is taking applications until midnight July 1, and accepted students, who will receive an $800 dollar stipend for their work, will be notified by July 14Information about sonification, project examples, and application details are at slideroom 60688. We learned of this opportunity through Perkins’ Paths to Technology, which has information on this program plus STEAM-y activities like accessible resources from the Chandra X-ray observatory, an abstract art lesson, and a huge list of coding related resources for students and teachers. Begin the journey here.
