Attention High School Students! Own Your Space!

As you’re getting to that point in your life when you feel the need to own your time and thoughts, do you ever think about owning your space too?

Do you know that high spatial thinking skills are correlated with success in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) in school and careers? Spatial thinking skills are also critical to being a successful traveler. The stronger your spatial thinking skills are, the easier it is to build a mental map and perform all sorts of other tasks that are important to get where you want to go in the environment or in life!

This summer, we want to give you some tools to grow your spatial thinking skills while expanding your knowledge of STEM—and connect you with a group of other blind youth your age.

From July 5 through July 30, the NFB EQ program is going virtual. On Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, we’ll be facilitating classes that focus on building spatial thinking skills. Activities will include origami, creative and technical drawing, and building structures out of a variety of materials!

We’ll send you everything you need to engage in the classes and, by the end of NFB EQ, you’ll have more physical tools in your toolbox (and more thinking tools in your brain) that you can apply now and in the future.
