NSF Features 2017 STEM Video Showcase in a News Article

Video showcase returns, spotlighting 155 NSF-funded STEM education projects

May 17, 2017
This week, STEM for All Video Showcase returns for its third year of highlighting innovative federally funded research that improves education in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields.

From May 15-22, the showcase, supported by the National Science Foundation (NSF), provides researchers the opportunity to feature their work in three-minute videos they created and posted to the STEM for All website. Visitors to the site can participate in online discussions with the researchers and vote for their favorites through Twitter and Facebook.

This year's showcase, called "Research and Design for Impact," features 171 STEM education initiatives -- 155 funded by NSF and 16 funded by other federal agencies.

Featured STEM education topics include neuron reconstruction, city-scale learning ecologies, rogue nanoparticles and more.

"The power of the showcase is that thousands of educators and researchers have access to a very broad range of projects and [can] engage in an interactive experience," said Joni Falk, principal investigator and co-director of the Center for School Reform at TERC, a mathematics and science education nonprofit.
