Informal Education (IE) Faculty Competition
Deadline: Monday, May 23, 2016, 5:00 pm PDT
The Nevada NASA Space Grant Consortium (NVSGC) has funding available for Informal Education Programs. The purpose of the Informal Education program is to create new or support current/ongoing successful pre- college informal education projects and partner with other education-based organizations to provide enhanced STEM training to the broadest possible student population in Nevada. We want to promote the development of materials and programs that provide pre-college students with hands-on science or engineering activities including the development of teams to compete in science and engineering challenges relevant to NASA. Student participation in these types of extracurricular activities will increase the likelihood of students enrolling in college within STEM curricula. Informal education experiences should demonstrate that science is fun, providing activities that create a sense of excitement for students during critical 1-12 school years.
