The NASA Consortium has Grants available!
The NASA Rhode Island Space Grant Consortium is soliciting applications to fund curriculum development projects at the K-12, undergraduate, and graduate levels throughout Rhode Island. All projects related to the development of NASA-relevant curricula or other educational programs are invited to apply for funding. Projects may include, but are not limited to, development of K-12 STEM lessons and educational materials, professional development programs/workshops for K-12 educators, new undergraduate and graduate courses that integrate content relevant to NASA goals, courses or educational programs that integrate NASA data or teach students how to work with NASA data products, and courses that employ new pedagogical approaches or methodologies to bring NASA-relevant content to a broad audience, to name a few. Projects and courses that focus on increasing access to high quality STEM education in underserved communities/groups, that offer hands-on learning experiences for students, and/or that seek to develop novel digital/online learning experiences for diverse audiences are highly encouraged.
Reach out to RI program leaders to discuss options for the cost-match requirement.
