STEM is for the abled and disabled

July 30, 2014

At the STEM Career Showcase for Students with Disabilities at the N.C. Museum of Natural Sciences, disabled kids learned that they were far from being disabled when it comes to STEM careers.

While the majority of the population believes that disabled kids aren’t capable of doing a lot of things that abled kids can do, the STEM Career Showcase for Students with Disabilities proves otherwise. Held at the N.C. Museum of Natural Sciences, many successful STEM workers that have disabilities showed that a disabled person doesn’t have to be held back from the job of their dreams. With encouragement and support from those around them as well as hard work, a student with disabilities can pursue a STEM career and succeed.
