Zenith / SPOK - Mentorship

Our organization provides virtual mentorship for blind and low vision (BLV) students (grades 8-12) from Ohio, across the country, and around the world. BLV students who are interested in space science will have the opportunity to meet others who share their passion for astronomy, physics, and aerospace engineering and will be paired one-on-one with mentors from Ohio State’s undergraduate and graduate programs. Weekly academic presentations, cohort discussions, one-on-one mentor meetings, 3D prints, and sonified data will give students the opportunity to learn about accessible space science. Our organization promotes academic growth for BLV students by providing access to higher education resources and connections. This club is open to both undergraduate and graduate students from any major who are interested in providing mentorship. No prior experience is necessary or expected.
