2019 NSF STEM for All Video Showcase (May 13-20)

Posted by Laura Guertin

Now in its fifth year and funded by the National Science Foundation, the STEM For All Video Showcase features over 240 innovative projects aimed at improving STEM learning and teaching, which have been funded by the NSF and other federal agencies. During the week-long event (May 13-20, 2019), researchers, practitioners, policy makers and members of the public are invited to view the short videos, discuss them with the presenters online, and vote for their favorites.

The theme for this year’s event is “Innovations in STEM Education.” Video presentations address improving K-12 STEM classroom, informal environments, undergraduate and graduate education, teacher professional development, and community engagement. Collectively the presentations cover a broad range of topics including science, mathematics, computer science, engineering, cyberlearning, citizen science, maker spaces, broadening participation, research experiences, mentoring, professional development, NGSS and the Common Core.

And I’ll share an example of one of the projects featured in the showcase (OK, it’s a NSF project I’m a part of). Our team created a video and are spending this week responding to comments posted by anyone that logs in to the website. So if you are interested in learning more about Student Produced Audio Narratives (SPAN), please check out the video, post on the discussion boards, and cast your vote!
