May 15-22, 2017 (online)
We invite you to present at the third interactive, online event: 2017 STEM for All Video Showcase: Research & Design for Impact, funded by NSF. Share your cutting edge work by creating a 3-minute video and then discussing it with your colleagues, stakeholders and the public during a week-long interactive event.
Last year’s online video showcase attracted tens of thousands of participants. It allowed presenters to learn about the current work being conducted by colleagues funded in different programs at NSF and beyond. Participants also reported reaching new people interested in taking part in or adapting their project and utilizing project resources, as well as gathering new ideas, contacts, resources, and potential future collaborations.
This year’s theme is research and design for impact. Your video should describe the need that inspired your project, illustrate your intervention or innovation, and discuss your project’s impact. If your project is newly funded, describe the potential that you see for impact and how you intend to measure it. Below we provide some forms of impact that you might consider, but feel free to enrich the conversation by suggesting other forms of impact that you are envisioning:
- Immediate: Has positive impact on project participants
- Educational practice: Offers a model of evidence-based practice to formal and informal educators, school leaders, etc.
- Research and theory: Provides evidence that advances the field or a generative framework for others
- Other stakeholders: Addresses the concerns of families, employers, and policymakers
Interested in participating? Here are important dates to keep in mind:
- Register as a presenter by February 15. Registration is mandatory for participation.
- Registrations will be reviewed and final approval will be sent by February. Priority will be given to NSF and other federally funded projects that address the theme Research & Design for Impact.
- Videos must be submitted no later than April 26, 2017. They must be less than three minutes long with audible sound. See important presenter information.
- The interactive event will take place May 15-May 22. Your presentation includes your agreement to actively participate in dialogue during the online event.
Use and Reuse of Your Video: The event will be accessible from the home page of all the named resource centers (below) and will offer your project and video broad dissemination. Your video will be archived on the site after the event ends and will be accessible for you to link to in the future. Your video belongs to you. You can also reuse it for your own website or other project purposes.

This event is facilitated by TERC, in collaboration with six NSF funded resource centers: MSPnet, CADRE, CIRCL, CAISE, STELAR, and CS for All Teachers resource centers. It is funded by the National Science Foundation.
The 2017 Showcase follows on the success of the 2016 NSF Video Showcase: Advancing STEM All and the 2015 Teaching and Learning Video Showcase. The 2015 and 2016 showcases together attracted about 50,000 participants and received accolades from NSF program officers. Your participation will make the 2017 event equally successful in sharing of work across NSF programs and with the public at large, and also in promoting reflective collegial discourse.
