From May 17 to 23, nine videos by EDC researchers and instructional designers will be featured in the National Science Foundation's (NSF) 2016 STEM Video Showcase. View EDC's nine videos here. The theme of the 2016 STEM Video Showcase—to broaden participation and increase access to quality STEM and computer science learning—is both a crucial component of NSF's mission and a key part of EDC's intensive STEM education efforts. The STEM Video Showcase is free and open to all, and all are invited to visit the virtual video hall, view the videos, and vote for their favorites.
Led by TERC's MSPnet in collaboration with the CADRE, CIRCL, CAISE, STELAR, CS10K Community, and ARC NSF resource centers, the 2016 STEM Video Showcase will include over 100 videos submitted by programs that are designing, testing, and using new strategies to improve STEM outcomes for all students--particularly students who are English learners, students with disabilities, and students from the many groups currently underrepresented in STEM careers.
