Join us May 13-20 for the 2019 STEM for All Video Showcase, a free, interactive, week-long video showcase event that will feature over 200 federally funded projects.
The 2018 NSF STEM for All Video Showcase: Transforming the Educational Landscape, will be held online May 14 - 21, 2018. This event is facilitated by TERC, in collaboration with six NSF-funded resource centers: MSPnet, CADRE, CIRCL, CAISE, STELAR, and CS for All Teachers. It is funded by the National Science Foundation (Award #1642187).
This year's themes are: Transforming the Educational Landscape
The NARST Early Career Research Award acknowledges contributions to science education through research by individuals during the seven years immediately following receipt of the doctoral degree. To qualify for the award this year, the nominee must have received the doctoral degree on or after January 1, 2010. All NARST members are encouraged to consider nominating an eligible and deserving early career member.
The nomination letter should help the committee understand how this scholar’s work is contextualized in the nominee's institution and/or home country.
Join CADRE and the other NSF Networks for the 2017 STEM For All Video Showcase from May 15-22, 2017. Almost 40 DR K-12 projects will be presenting videos about their work. Watch, comment, and vote!
On May 17th – 23rd, 2016, more than 150 projects will showcase three-minute videos of their innovative work broadening participation and access to STEM. We invite researchers, practitioners, administrators, policy makers and the general public to view the videos and to interact with each of the presenters online. We look forward to your participation!

- Session Title: Exploring Shapes in Space with the Frogonauts (03/14/2011)
Presenters: Tutita Casa (project: Project M2: Maturing Mathematicians -- Advanced Curriculum for Primary Level Students), Janine Firmender
Abstract: Many people of different ages now participate in immersive virtual environments, from Club Penguin and Webkins through World of Warcraft, America's Army, and Second Life. The 2010 National Educational Technology Plan identifies immersive media as among the most powerful emerging technologies for learning. This session describes our research in designing and studying immersive virtual worlds as curriculum (digital ecosystems) and summative assessments (science inquiry).
The Center for Elementary Mathematics and Science Education at the University of Chicago is convening a series of on-line forums on fidelity of implementation with a particular focus on STEM education programs. These forums build from an NSF supported project that resulted in a suite of instruments for measuring FOI of mathematics and science instructional materials and a series webinars that highlighted some of the challenging issues of FOI measurement.
