In the Houston BELL program, we did experiments described in the book:
"Hands-on Science: Experiences in the STEM Subjects for Students
in Kindergarten and Elementary School
Out-Of-Sight Science Experiments by Dr. Lillian Rankel and Marilyn Winograd 
published in
Braille and large print by National Braille Press. The book contains
thirty-two experiments. 
Future Reflections summer 2013.

Also, we were able to have the organization called Mad Science (https://www.madscience.org/), give science lessons to our kids for an hour a day for a week.  Mad Science specializes in science lessons for elementary age children.  There may be similar organizations in your areas.

Subject: [Nfb-science] Looking for Suggestions: Moon Project for Next Year's BELL Program

Since next year is the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11, the first ever moon landing, I thought about doing something around that as part of our state's BELL program next year. However, I'm not sure what would be a goodpresentation. I have a general idea of what I want to do, to somehow recount the story of that landing, but I don't want to have the students just sit and read or hear something about it. I also know that I want to find models of the command and lunar modules as well as the Saturn 5 rocket so they can look at them. However, that's about all I know. We're not sure if we're doing the version for ages 4-12 or ages 11-18. We have a lot of unknowns, so we're looking for ideas. Do any of you have suggestions on what our team might do? Who might we contact for help? Where might I get marerials? My team and I are clueless and are looking for any ideas you might be able to give us. Thanks.
