Environmental Literacy Grants for Formal K-12 Education Projects

NOAA’s Office of Education offers grants for Formal K-12 Education Projects that advance inquiry-based Earth System Science learning and stewardship directly tied to the school curriculum, with a particular interest in increasing climate literacy.  Note that projects related to the Gulf of Mexico oil spill are encouraged.  A successful project will catalyze change in K-12 education at the state, regional and national level through development of new programs and/or revision of existing programs to improve the environmental literacy of K-12 teachers and their students.  The target audiences are K-12 students, pre- and in-service teachers, and providers of pre-service teacher education and in-service teacher professional development.  There is a special interest in projects that address reaching groups traditionally underserved and/or underrepresented in Earth System science, including elementary students and teachers.  The deadline for required pre-proposals is September 8, 2010.
