Carrie Ferraro, Associate Director of the Coastal Climate Risk & Resilience Initiative from Rutgers University will be featured in the 2021 STEM for All Video Showcase funded by the National Science Foundation.  The event will be held online May 11th – 18th at

The presentation, entitled “Building Resilience Through Co-Production,” looks at how graduate students are Rutgers are partnering with local NJ municipalities to make the NJ coast more resilient to climate change. The project was funded by the National Science Foundation.

Now in its seventh year, the annual showcase will feature over 280 innovative projects aimed at improving Science, Math, Engineering and CS education, which have been funded by the National Science Foundation and other federal agencies. During the 8 day 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 “COVID, Equity & Social Justice.” Video presentations address broadening participation, impacts of COVID on STEM teaching and learning, design implementation on STEM and CS programs, research informing STEM and CS teaching and learning, and measuring impact of innovative programs. Collectively the presentations cover a broad range of topics including science, mathematics, computer science, engineering, cyberlearning, citizen science, maker spaces, broadening participation, research experiences, mentoring, professional development, NGSS and the Common Core.

Last year’s STEM for All Video Showcase is still being accessed, and to date has had over 86,000 unique visitors from 180 countries.

The STEM for All Video Showcase is 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).
