STEM ASL Video Dictionary

This project, led by Geoff Poor, a Professor in the NTID American Sign Language and Interpreting Education department, will be creating a searchable text and video online database of STEM-related signs. Geoff will collect terminology commonly used in a particular STEM discipline, determine how those concepts are being signed by experts in selected representative areas of the country, and then a team of experts will decide on recommended signs for the dictionary. These signs will be presented with definitions and sentence level context, and all will be in both English text and ASL video.

This project is being supported in part by a gift from the Dow Chemical Company.
