9th Annual Inclusion in Science, Learning a New Direction, Conference
(ISLAND) on Disability



The 9th annual Inclusion in Science, Learning a New Direction, Conference
(ISLAND) on disability is just around the corner! Come learn about
innovative research that seeks to integrate persons with disabilities into
Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) fields of study
from researchers and practitioners in the field. The conference will also
include current professionals from the field that will present Enrichment
programs and other research they are currently engaged in promoting access
to technology in the STEM Education Industry. Network with these
Twenty-First Century innovators who are promoting inclusion and equity in
STEM opportunities. 

The conference will be held on Friday, September 14, and Saturday, September
15, 2018 at Bowen Hall located on Prospect Drive on the Princeton University
campus in Princeton, New Jersey. The conference will begin on Friday,
September 14 with a reception that will begin at 6:30 PM. This reception
will be followed by a keynote address by Michael Hingson who is himself
totally blind. He will tell his story about how he survived the World Trade
Center tragedy in 2001. His blindness skills and himself being a scientist
did pay dividends in his successful escape, but the countless others he also
helped to get out.

The conference will then continue on the morning of Saturday, September 15
with a continental breakfast at 8:30 AM and conclude by 5:30 PM. Conference
registration is $20 in advance and $30 after September 1. Attendees can
