Register to be a presenter in the 4th annual STEM for All Video Showcase by Feb. 15th. This interactive, free, online event, will occur May 14th-21st at http://stemforall2018.videohall.com. The showcase will feature the work of approximately 200 innovative STEM Educational projects funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and other Federal agencies. Presenters will share a short (less than 3-minute) video narrative and discuss it with researchers, practitioners, policy makers, industry leaders, and the public at large during this weeklong event.
“The showcase provides the opportunity to learn about related work in the field, to make new contacts and collaborations, to hear from audiences interested in using project resources, to receive new ideas and feedback, and to broadly disseminate innovative work,” said Joni Falk, Principal Investigator of the Video Showcase and co-director of the Center for School Reform at TERC.
Registration is now open and will close on Feb. 15th or earlier if the showcase receives 250 registrations. Video requirements are available here. Once presenters have registered and are approved, they can submit their video between March 15th and April 25th. During the interactive event, May 14th– 21st, thousands of participants will view the videos, partake in discussions, and vote for their favorites. Based on online voting, some presentations will be recognized on the site at the end of the event as public choice, presenters’ choice or facilitator’s choice.
