Todd, who will be discussing the Georgia STEM Accessibility Alliance (GSAA) project, also known as BreakThru, which is an innovative learning community that connects students with disabilities and peer mentors in a unique way to promote universal learning and accessibility to Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) based degrees.

About BreakThru:

The influence of digital media has changed the way students learn, play and socialize. As a result, researchers at Georgia Tech and the University of Georgia (UGA) have partnered to develop a virtual learning environment that combines creative avatars and social networking tools to help high school and college students with disabilities to succeed in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) programs. The universities work alongside Georgia Perimeter College and the school systems of Georgia’s Greene, Clarke and Gwinnett counties to serve targeted students.
