Signing Bioscience Dictionary (SBD)


With the Increasing STEM Signing Knowledge of Undergraduate Student Interpreters Exploration and Design project, TERC and Lamar University developed a prototype Signing Bioscience Dictionary (SBD). This work was funded in part by a grant from the National Science Foundation (Award #1703343). They then researched its effectiveness in increasing the American Sign Language (ASL) life science vocabulary of students enrolled in Lamar's ASL programs and in using it to interpret content.
