Andreas Stefik, an Engineering professor at the University of Nevada, Los Vegas will be honored for furthering computer science during a January 26 ceremony at the White House. His work is far reaching, but among his noted achievements is the establishment of the first national education infrastructure for blind or visually impaired students to learn computer science. His model is currently being used in 20 states as well as overseas.
It’s encouraging to see work that benefits visually impaired people given such high award. To read the full press release, visit UNLV’s website.
