MSPnet is an electronic community that serves NSF's MSP and STEM+C programs.
It welcomes all educators and researchers interested in improving Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics, and Computer Science.
The majority of resources generated by NSF projects are available to the public at large and we invite you to visit our library, join MSPnet Academy webinars and sign-up for our newsletter. Members of funded MSP, CE21 and STEM+C projects are encouraged to log-in and make use of Project Spaces for collaboration.
Research & Design For Impact
On May 15 - 22, 2017, more than 150 projects will showcase three-minute videos of their innovative work related to STEM teaching and learning in formal and informal environments. We invite you to view the videos, discuss them online with the presenter, and to vote for the ones that you find most interesting. Please share this with your networks of researchers, practitioners, parents, and the general public.
We look forward to your participation!
