Careers in Science for the Handicapped Project: Training Manual.
California Univ., Irvine. Career Planning and Placement Center.
The two-phase project was designed to expose physically handicapped students to information concerning the feasibility of preparing for, entering, and pursuing scientific careers. The first phase consisted of a series of outreach visits (conducted by physically handicapped college students enrolled in science programs and the project coordinator to participating junior/senior high schools). The second phase involved 50 project participants in a 6-week course of mini-workshops to enable the students to learn about academic programs and career options in three major science disciplines (biology, engineering, and computer sciences). A large portion of the document consists of appendixes, such as a table of the suggested time frame for activities and a student posttest. Portions of each mini-workshop are available on videotape.
