Description:

The Geoscience Education Program considers proposals to initiate or pilot innovative geoscience education activities. Projects that are informed by the results of current education-related research or that will conduct new educational research within a geoscience education venue are particularly appropriate for consideration under this solicitation. Awards are intended to provide start-up or proof-of-concept funding to enable projects to reach a level of maturity that will allow them to compete for longer-term funding from other sources or become self-sustaining. All proposed projects should have strong dissemination and evaluation plans. Proposals may target any educational level: postdoctoral, graduate, undergraduate, secondary, middle, or elementary. Proposals to develop or improve the quality of geoscience-oriented pre-service teacher training and in-service
professional development programs are also encouraged, as are proposals to increase or improve the geoscience content of informal education programs. Proposals to develop web-based educational materials that can be made available through the Digital Library for Earth System Education (DLESE) are also sought. Projects designed to recruit and retain students during the critical transition from high-school to college are appropriate for consideration by the GeoEd Program. In some cases, awards may be made to supplement active research grants.
