Georgia Tech's K-12 STEM Education Unit Featured in NSF 2019 STEM for All Video Showcase
May 13, 2019 | Atlanta, GA
The NSF - STEM for All Video Showcase, held May 13th-20th, is a week-long online event that features short video presentations on National Science Foundation (NSF) and other federal agency funded projects. The videos specifically highlight projects that involve Science, Mathematics, Engineering, and Computer Science education.
The showcase encourages researchers, K-12 educators, higher education faculty, administrators, policymakers, and the general public to vote for their favorite videos to determine those recognized for the Public Choice award. Presenters can also participate in the voting for the Facilitators' Choice award. All visitors and participants also have the opportunity to provide critical feedback and ask questions about the projects.
The Georgia Tech Center for Education Integrating Science, Mathematics, and Computing, (CEISMC), a unit that serves as the connection point between Georgia Tech, and the K-12 education community, submitted three videos to this year's showcase.
CEISMC garnered the 2017 Facilitators' Choice award for a video about an inspiring curriculum in math, science, and engineering called, "AMP-IT-UP." (NSF Awards: 1238089). The AMP-IT-UP project submitted a new video this year highlighting the impact of the project on teaching and learning in the classroom in the Griffin-Spalding County School System in Central Georgia.
This year, CEISMC's research and evaluation group present a video about one of their projects entitled, "An Exploratory Study: The Role of Social Networks and Self-Efficacy in the Retention of Noyce Teachers." (NSF Awards: 1660597)
The CAPACiTY project seeks to broaden the pipeline of students into computer science through relevant and culturally authentic project-based instructional materials for the high school Introduction to Digital Technology pathway, also produced and submitted a presentation video to the showcase. (NSF Awards: 1639946)
During May 13th-20th, CEISMC's videos and the over 200 other video submissions can be seen and voted for at the STEM for All Video Showcase's website https://stemforall2019.videohall.com.
