NOAA’s Office of Education Requesting Applications for Formal K-12 Education Projects Advancing Earth Systems Science Learning and Stewardship

Full Applications Due 5 p.m., Jan. 12, 2011

NOAA’s Office of Education (OEd) has issued a request for applications for Formal K-12 Education Projects that advance inquiry-based Earth systems science learning and stewardship directly tied to the school curriculum, with a particular interest in increasing climate literacy.

To address this goal, the solicitation will support service-learning and professional development projects related to NOAA’s mission in the areas of ocean, coastal, Great Lakes, weather and climate sciences and stewardship. Please note that projects related to the Gulf of Mexico oil spill are highly encouraged. A successful project will catalyze change in K-12 education at the state, regional and national level through the development of new programs and/or revision of existing programs to improve the environmental literacy of K-12 teachers and their students. A successful project will also leverage NOAA assets, although the use of non-NOAA assets is also encouraged.
