National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NEDEAM)
This year marks the 75th Anniversary of National Disability Employment Awareness Month. STEM plays an important role in solving problems in a variety of fields. People with disabilities are experienced problem solvers with a proven ability to adapt, that is why it’s important to provide accessible STEM learning opportunities at an early age.
