Do you need additional materials to support your STEM/CS programs? This opportunity is for you!
Opportunity goals/objectives: The goal of the Program Expansion Grant is to provide high-quality STEM learning experiences, programs that encourage student participation, and engagement with tangible STEM/21st-Century skills and proficiencies. This grant will provide funding for additional materials to support educators who have already received professional development training.
Brief description: Funding will expand classroom materials for educators who have received professional development or other trainings on these materials. Often, professional development and other trainings do not provide a full classroom set of associated materials. The Program Expansion Grant aims to support the expansion of successful computer science, coding, and STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) programs in Idaho. Educators must have already taken training or professional development in the program they are seeking to expand, and the program must already be implemented into their curriculum and proven successful. Priority is given to educators who have attended STEM Action Center’s program/trainings.
Eligibility: Educators from publicly-funded educational organizations such as schools, libraries, after-school educational programs, and educational nonprofits/community centers who have previously received professional development or other training, and implemented related materials in their learning environment.
