Mathematical and Computational Methods for Planning a Sustainable Future (PS-Future)

Highlight: The 2018 STEM for All Video Showcase includes a video about the PS-Future project. The three-minute video introduces the PS-Future modules, the topics that student explore in them, and the mathematical and computational methods that can be used in planning for sustainability. The annual Video Showcase features short videos about over 200 innovative projects aimed at improving STEM learning and teaching that have been funded by the National Science Foundation and other federal agencies.
