IDATA

Published: October 1, 2016

Both Mr. Spuck and Ms. Meredith are part of Innovators Developing Accessible Tools for Astronomy (IDATA), which has just been funded by the NSF. They are working with a user centered design process to create astronomical data processing software that is accessible to blind and low vision students and scientists.  See http://yerkesoutreach.org/IDATA

As we feared, the January 2021 American Astronomical Society (AAS) meeting is going to be online-only. The kickoff workshop for NITARP 2021 would have been associated with this meeting. Because travel and face-to-face meetings are such an integral part of the NITARP experience, we have decided to not form new NITARP teams in 2021. We expect to have teams in 2022, assuming the pandemic loosens its grip. Please let us know if you wish to be on the mailing list to be notified when the application is available.
