Welcome to Casual Conversations with Deaf and Hard of Hearing People in STEM! Hands & Voices, in partnership with a sponsorship from the NTID Regional STEM Center at RIT/NTID, created opportunities for Deaf/Hard of Hearing teens to connect with Deaf/Hard of Hearing adults working in the STEM field. Each one of the videos below is a free-flowing conversation with a variety of questions about career, home, and fun!
