ITEEA's STEM Showcase: Where Great Ideas Come Together!

Meet a 2020 Showcase Presenter...


Meet Joan Harper-Neely

Joan is a STEM Education Specialist at the National Institute of Aerospace (NIA). As a member of the NASA eClips team, she creates educational multimedia resources focused on STEM through the lens of NASA. Joan provides professional development on research-based STEM education best practices utilizing NASA eClips™ videos, educator guides, and engineering challenges.

Joan shared, "I LOVE the STEM Showcase! It promotes learning from a variety of participants' experiences. I am able to try an activity or resource and ask questions about how to best implement it into my curriculum. The exhibitors share prior pitfalls and how they solved the problems. I can learn about the best materials and resources to use and where to find them. The STEM Showcase is an excellent place for networking and building partnerships.."

On March 12, 2020 in Baltimore, Joan will be sharing a Showcase titled, "Students as Content Creators: NASA Spotlite Video Challenge." NASA Spotlites are 90-120 second student-produced video segments correcting science misconceptions. The NASA Spotlite Video Design Challenge provides a unique opportunity for students to use the engineering design process to develop videos for the NASA eClips website. The Challenge allows students to gain production experience and deepen their understanding of science content.


The STEM Showcase is just one of many professional development and networking opportunities for ITEEA 2020 Conference attendees.
