DEAI+STEM=FMSM

We believe anyone can be a scientist. The Fargo-Moorhead Science Museum is designed to be innovative and inclusive. Diversity, Equity, Accessibility, and Inclusion shape every aspect of the FMSM experience, including conceptual framework, design, and learning opportunities. The Museum will reflect the diverse ways of knowing, through which many cultures interact with the world, including the indigenous nations in our region and the diversity of our residents. The Fargo-Moorhead Science Museum will create experiences that spark delight and ignite people to imagine positive futures for themselves and their communities, regardless of age, race, religion, socioeconomic status, or abilities.

What are we Doing to be Accessible?
Below is a list of items we have implemented to enhance our webpages, so they are as easy as possible to navigate for all users.

For those users who need it, our goal is to facilitate access to our website using assistive technologies, such as a screen reader, text to speech or speech recognition software, screen magnifier, and/or keyboard emulators.

We make every effort to ensure our website is complying and follows Federal Accessibility Regulations (https://www.regulations.gov/accessibility) and follows WCAG and ADA compliance recommendation.

Site Layout
Our webpage layouts are structured for easy navigation for individuals using assistive technology.

Text Alternatives
Wherever images appear on our webpages, a text-based alternative is provided for screen readers to read the alternate text content.

Audio and Video Content
Many of our webpages contain audio and video contents, and wherever it is feasible we provide a text-based alternative, including captions and transcripts.

Text and Background Colors
Our webpages are often rich with content, images, and functionality, and we consider accessibility in our design and content creation process.

Zooming
Most modern browsers support page zooming functionality, to allow users to increase or decrease the size of the page content without loss of content or function. Our webpages are optimized to use the browser zoom functionality. Users will be able to zoom-in or zoom-out for most parts of the webpages.

Keyboard Accessibility
Most parts of our webpages can be accessed using only tab-based keyboard or keyboard emulators to navigate through the site.

Browser Support
We test our webpages to render correctly across multiple browsers.
