Building Tools for Inclusive Astronomy: IDATA and Other AUI Initiatives

In partnership with other US and international institutions, AUI is working to support the development of resources to make teaching and learning of astronomy accessible to all. Innovators Developing Accessible Tools for Astronomy (IDATA)is developing a new software tool along with curricular resources that make astronomy accessible to the blind and visually impaired (BVI). In addition, AUI is working with the Organization of American States to produce an online repository of known education resources to support learners with disabilities. Attendees will experience the new IDATA software tool, and learn about the new online repository and how they can help.
