>The MIDWEST senior personnel are working together to transition secondary
>students with disabilities in STEM, educate post-secondary students with
>disabilities in STEM, and support undergraduate students' entry into graduate
>programs and industry. By modifying STEM instruction and support services
>for students, transforming training environments and increasing
