Register Now to be a Presenter in the 2022 STEM for All Video Showcase: Access, Inclusion & Equity

The 2022 STEM for All Video Showcase will take place May 10th – 17th. We invite you to register to present a short video of your federally funded project to improve STEM teaching and learning. Registration is mandatory to present and is now open until February 11th. We will end registration early if we reach capacity, so do not delay!

This year’s theme is STEM for All: Access, Inclusion & Equity. Videos should address at least one of the following subthemes:

  • Projects or partnerships addressing broadening participation
  • STEM learning in formal, informal, community and home settings
  • Design and implementation of innovative STEM and CS programs
  • Research informing STEM and CS teaching and learning
  • Measuring impact of innovative programs

During the week-long event in May, tens of thousands of visitors will visit the showcase from around the world. You will have the opportunity to discuss your work with researchers, educators, policymakers, and parents so please make your presentation accessible to a broad audience. The showcase provides an opportunity to disseminate your work broadly, learn of related work in progress, make new contacts and connections, and to offer and receive useful feedback. 

We look forward to learning of the innovations and changes that you implemented during COVID. Given the ongoing pandemic, some of you may need to rely more on graphics, virtually-captured footage, animation, or illustration and interviews. In any case, we know that you will find creative ways to tell your project’s story. To help, our team’s videographer will offer a webinar with tips on producing an effective video on February 16th at 3 PM, ET. Our home page provides some sample 2021 videos that utilize different strategies and may provide ideas to convey your project’s story.

We encourage you to visit and explore presentations of interest to you and provide new comments to the presenters. Videos from the upcoming 2022 Showcase will also be added to the Multiplex after the May event.

The STEM for All Video Showcase and Multiplex are created and hosted by TERC, in partnership with: STEMTLnet, CADRE, CAISE, CIRCLS, STELAR, CS for All Teachers, NARST, NCTM, NSTA, NSF INCLUDES, and QEM. The Showcase is funded by a grant from the National Science Foundation (#1922641).
