(Pre-proposal telecon Feb. 4, Notice of Intent due Feb. 5; Proposals due Feb. 26)

In January 2010, NASA Administrator Charles Bolden responded to a national need for improvements in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education by announcing a new NASA program to improve the STEM skills and abilities of American students, the Summer of Innovation. NASA will pilot this program by partnering with state consortia of the National Space Grant College and Fellowship Program.

Summer of Innovation is an intensive STEM teaching and learning program conducted during the summer 2010. It is targeted at the middle school level and will include follow-on activities during the following school year, supported by a STEM learning community. The objectives of the Summer of Innovation will be accomplished by the strategic infusion of NASA content and products into evidence-based summer learning programs at the state level. NASA will use the Summer of Innovation as a catalyst to expand, align, and strengthen existing state-based STEM learning networks. The Summer of Innovation will encourage state STEM education stakeholders to build connections between schools and partners.
