One week left to apply for funding for educational space programs

The Wisconsin Space Grant Consortium administers and supports a variety of programs intended to encourage participation of K-12 teachers and students in aerospace activities.  One such program, the Aerospace Outreach Program, provides planning grants and supplemental grants for new or ongoing projects which have space-related content and is accepting grant applications through October 16th

Projects eligible for funding should:

  • raise the level of exposure and interest of K-12 teachers, students, and the general public in space, aerospace, and space-related science, design, or technology and its potential benefits; and/or increase interest, recruitment, experience and training of pre-college students in the pursuit of space- or aerospace-related science, design, or technology.
  • demonstrate self-sustaining and/or replicable capabilities.
  • clearly meet the 2015-2016 specific goal: improve the STEM pipeline by including underserved and/or underrepresented students in the project; or including the teachers who specifically teach those populations.

Educators interested in applying will find more information and application materials at https://spacegrant.carthage.edu/funding-programs/k-12/aerospace-outreach/
