Welcome to the SIGCSE NSF Showcase!

Every year, twenty projects that are currently being sponsored by NSF are asked to present their work in an interactive, personal format during the break sessions and open slots at SIGCSE. The SIGCSE Symposium provides a forum for educators from K-12 through college to discuss issues and new ideas related to the development and implementation of computing curricula, along with other elements of teaching and pedagogy. The goal of the showcase is to share information about programs and research opportunities that attendees might not otherwise hear about. Presenters in the showcase report that they enjoy presenting their work in this format and that the attendees that come through the showcase are interested in learning and interacting with the presenters.

The showcase itself takes place during five 45-minute sessions throughout the conference. Four presenters participate in each of these sessions to give a presentation/demonstration in the exhibition area. The presentation itself is structured more like an interactive poster session and is a chance for people to come up and speak to presenters about their research.
