Michigan Tech through the Department of Mechanical Engineering-Engineering Mechanics is one of five universities selected to participate in the National Science Foundation (NSF) Diversity Training Program. The NSF program is called Transforming Engineering Culture to Advance Inclusion and Diversity (TECAID).
TECAID participants share their funded work as part of an online STEM for All Video Showcase. Short videos address access to high quality STEM experiences, innovative practices, partnerships, and research. TECAID’s program goal is to diversify mechanical engineering education, making it more inclusive of women and under-represented minorities.
Last year the program participants submitted “Transforming Engineering Culture to Advance Inclusion and Diversity (TECAID) Project Overview,” winning the Facilitator’s Choice Award for the 2017 NSF STEM for All Showcase: Research and Design for Impact.
For the 2018 NSF STEM for All Showcase: Transforming the Educational Landscape, the TECAID participants have submitted the follow-up video.
The 2018 showcase will take place May 14-21. Presentations are from projects that address STEM and CS learning and receive federal funding from NSF and other federal agencies.
Event visitors are encouraged to watch videos, post questions, and provide feedback to presenters during the week of May 14 – 21. Videos can be recognized as Facilitators’ Choice, Presenters’ Choice, and Public Choice. Visitors are encouraged to vote for their favorite videos to determine those recognized as Public Choice. It’s free to watch, discuss, and vote for videos.
