Dr. Cary Supalo is a blind scientist and educator. He was invited to conduct the Camp Can Do 2009 science workshop in Bon Accord Tobago. Dr. Supalo has extensively researched the use of adaptive technologies in teaching science curricula to blind students and has been instrumental in developing various innovative laboratory tools and methodologies.

Many of the campers were quite impressed with the various assistive technology tools that were used in the workshop. None of them ever knew that there were so many tools and techniques that were available for a blind person to conduct science experiments. Dr. Supalo was an inspiration to all.

The interview was conducted in September 2009 by Tim Ryan of the Torres Foundation in our Washington DC office.
