Mainstream technology tools with built-in accessibility features, the availability of virtual reality, simulations, and augmented reality offer new opportunities for students with disabilities to access and engage with STEM content. This brief presents ways for educational leaders to align the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) practices using accessible technologies, STEM tools and Universal Design for Learning (UDL).

Did you know? STEM jobs are among the fastest growing and highest paid occupations, with STEM jobs expected to grow to more than 9 million by 2022 (link is external). Given that it is likely that all your students will need some degree of scientific and technology literacy in future jobs, it is imperative that schools and districts ensure that ALL students have equal opportunity to pursue STEM careers. Where should we start?

Physical tasks are an important part of many science lessons, from taking soil samples, mixing chemicals, using Bunsen burners, recording data, and performing dissections. This type of physical work can present barriers for many students with disabilities. However, with the right technology tools, we can create personalized learning opportunities that support students with disabilities in "doing" science.
