(Pre-Proposal Telecon May 8; NOIs Due May 22; Proposals Due July 24)
NASA solicita education opportunities in support of NASA’s Office of Education under the Minority University Research and Education Project (MUREP) for fiscal years 2013-2014. The goals of the NASA Innovations in Climate Education – Tribal (NICE-T) activity are to use NASA’s unique contributions to climate and Earth systems science, through collaboration with tribal institutions, to improve the quality of the Nation’s science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education to:
- Increase the level of climate literacy and engagement of the United States public.
- Create a diverse, highly skilled, and motivated future workforce in climate-related science.
- Advance the understanding of how to effectively teach global climate change concepts.
NICE-T seeks to improve the teaching and learning about global climate change on tribal college campuses and in partnership with elementary and secondary schools through many objectives (see complete list in full solicitation). Proposals should make use of existing NASA contributions to climate and Earth systems science. Only Tribal Colleges and Universities as designated by the U.S. Department of Education are eligible to propose. Any other institution may apply through partnership with the lead institution.
