The great importance of science education for school-age youth is well known. And it is a subject that is challenging in itself and requires focus and effort on the part of students. However, it is known that in Brazil, 5% of the population are deaf or have some hearing impairment. Within this number, there are young deaf people who need to learn Science in their own language, the Brazilian Sign Language (LIBRAS). In Brazil, there is still no unified, digital and accessible database for the learning of Sciences in LIBRAS, which hinders the learning process of the deaf in science education and its technologies.
