Hi Everyone,

Isn’t it amazing how much is happening regarding the STEM fields and Nemeth
Code and Tactile Graphics for students who are blind and visually impaired
and their TSVIs these days!! And of course, certain ones of us are in the
thick of it – having so much fun by the way!! Anyway, we have a new
offering for TSVIs that has a quick turn-around required. As always, there
is no cost. Please spread the word far and wide, so that we can get to as
many TSVIs as possible. There is a May 27th deadline for applying for the
training, so forward this quickly to everyone you know who might be

I know there are probably not a lot of TSVIs on this list (although I know
at least five), but I’ll bet each of you knows at least one who would love
to learn more about the Nemeth Code. I know this is an international list,
but the TSVIs  also do have to be from the United States because of our
grant funding.

By the way, we will be having our Awards Ceremony and Hatch Party for our
first Mission INSPIRE rocketeers this coming Saturday!!

I will keep you posted as more new and exciting options come down the

Best wishes,

Good morning! I am delighted to share about a 1-time synchronous online
training that Dr. Penny Rosenblum, Sara Larkin, Susan Osterhaus, and I will
be offering this summer at no cost!

We are recruiting 25 teachers of students with visual impairments
throughout the United States who currently have or anticipate having a
braille reader using Nemeth Code within UEB Contexts in grades 6-12 next
year to participate in the training. Since the training will focus on
secondary math and science symbols, teachers should be able read and write
Nemeth Code symbols used in the early elementary grades.

The sessions will be held on:

o June 9 from 4:00-6:00 PM Eastern / 1:00-3:00 PM Pacific

o June 16 from 4:00-6:00 PM Eastern / 1:00-3:00 PM Pacific

o June 23 from 4:00-6:00 PM Eastern / 1:00-3:00 PM Pacific

In order to apply for the training, visit
https://uofsc.co1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_6zipEabIXNYe4lg and complete
the consent form and pre-training online survey by Friday, May 27, 2022.

Teachers will be notified by the end of the day on Tuesday, May 31, 2022 if
they are accepted.

If you have any questions, please let me know.
