YOUTH SLAM

The NFB brought 200 high school students who were blind or low-vision to the campus of Johns Hopkins University for four days of hands on science & engineering activities. Students chose between various “tracks”, one of which involved launching an instrument on a small balloon. The students worked in teams of three, with a mentor from NFB.
