KU to Participate in 2019 NSF's STEM for All Video Showcase to Highlight Innovations in STEM Education
Kutztown, PA (05/13/2019) — Kutztown University's National Science Foundation (NSF) grant will be featured in the 2019 STEM for All Video Showcase funded by the NSF. The event will be held online May 13-20.
KU's featured work highlights Student Produced Audio Narratives (SPAN). KU's video, illustrated and created by sophomore communication design major Maxwell Jackson, can be viewed here.
Now in its fifth year, the annual showcase will feature more than 240 innovative projects aimed at improving STEM learning and teaching, which have been funded by the National Science Foundation and other federal agencies. During the week-long event, 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.
Last year's STEM for All Video Showcase is still being accessed, and to date has had over 81,000 unique visitors from 186 countries.
The STEM for All Video Showcase is created and hosted by TERC a non-profit, research and development organization, located in Cambridge MA. TERC partners with six NSF funded resource centers MSPnet, CADRE, CAISE, CIRCL, STELAR, CS for All Teachers. The Showcase is funded by a grant from the National Science Foundation (#1642187).
