This project implemented and tested methods to adapt Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) science programs to accommodate Australian students with disabilities. Universal Design principles were applied to the Tyre Track activity in the Forensic Frenzy program to improve the science experience for visually impaired students. The team gathered survey and observational data, evaluated activity effectiveness, and delivered recommendations and guidelines. Statistical analysis demonstrated that non-formal education programs modified to contain multi-sensory components increase student knowledge and understanding.
