In this paper, we will discuss the use of accessible technologies to expose visually impaired students to the science of robotics using real world, hands-on activities. The purpose of the initiative stemmed from the current lack of engineering and robotic related extracurricular programs, activities, and resources offered to blind and visually impaired youth. Discussion on the technologies and our approach is presented in this paper and validated through a national outreach effort with visually impaired student populations.
