         WHY IS IT SO DIFFICULT FOR PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES
                TO ENTER AND SUCCEED IN CAREERS IN 
               SCIENCE, ENGINEERING, & MATHEMATICS?
                              
     Project PURSUIT needs your insights!  We are seeking input from 
professionals in the fields of science, engineering, and mathematics, 
educators, students, parents, rehabilitation professionals, and anyone 
else who would like to contribute.  PURSUIT, an National Science 
Foundation-funded project, is researching the underrepresentation of 
people with disabilities in the careers of science, engineering, and 
mathematics.  People with disabilities encounter numerous barriers which 
may hinder them in the classroom, in laboratories, and in the workplace. 
Whether or not you have experience with people with disabilities, we 
would greatly value your ideas on this subject.
