The UT STEM Center, parent organization for WeTeach_CS, is proud to have two projects taking part in this year’s STEM for All Video Showcase (May 14-21), sponsored by the National Science Foundation (NSF). We would like to encourage everyone in our STEM and CS community to check out this year’s showcase entries and then share, discuss, and vote for your favorites!

Argument-Driven Engineering: A New Instructional Approach

Argument-Driven Engineering: A New Instructional Approach

The aim of this project is to develop and research a new instructional framework for integrating engineering into middle school science classes. The project is the result of a collaboration between The University of Texas at Austin and the Round Rock Independent School District (RRISD) in Round Rock, Texas.

Impact of a Teacher-Led Early Algebra Intervention

Impact of a Teacher-Led Early Algebra Intervention

This video will showcase evidence that children in elementary grades can engage in algebraic thinking in powerful ways. In particular, this project shares results on how children in Grades 3-5 develop longitudinally in their algebraic thinking, including growth in their use of algebraic strategies to solve non-routine problems.

About the STEM for All Video Showcase

Now in its fourth year, the annual showcase will feature over 200 innovative projects aimed at improving STEM learning and teaching, which have been funded by the National Science Foundation and other federal agencies. During the weeklong, event researchers, practitioners, policy makers and members of the public are invited to view the short videos, discuss them with the presenters online, and vote for their favorites.

The theme for this year’s event is “Transforming the Educational Landscape.” Video presentations cover a wide range of topics including science, mathematics, computer science, engineering, cyberlearning, citizen science, maker spaces, mentoring, informal learning, professional development, research and evaluation, NGSS and the Common Core. The videos highlight initiatives for students of all ages – kindergarten through graduate school, as well as those for adult learners.
