NSF Solicitation – STEM + Computing K-12 Education (STEM+C)

The National Science Foundation (NSF) is accepting grant proposals for PD18-005Y. The STEM+C Program focuses on research and development of interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary approaches to the integration of computing within STEM teaching and learning for pre-K-12 students in both formal and informal settings. The STEM+C program supports research on how students learn to think computationally to solve interdisciplinary problems in science and mathematics. The program supports research and development that builds on evidence-based teacher preparation or professional development activities that enable teachers to provide excellent instruction on the integration of computation and STEM disciplines. Proposals should describe projects that are grounded in prior evidence and theory, are innovative or potentially transformative, and that will generate and build knowledge about the integration of computing and one or more STEM disciplines at the pre-K-12 level.

Per Illinois TEch policy, all grant applications, regardless of funding source, must submitted by the Office of Sponsored Research and Programs. Completed proposals are due in OSRP at least two business days prior to the deadline set by the sponsor. Please contact osrp@iit.edu or call 312.567.3035 for assistance.
