From the U.S. Department of Education (ED). Please share with those you believe might be interested. These opportunities are not restricted to MSP (Mathematics and Science Partnership) participants. Others are eligible to apply.


The following opportunities may be of interest.

NASA Summer of Innovation: Consider applying for the 2011 Summer of Innovation (SoI), an intensive STEM teaching and learning program that targets middle school students and middle school teachers. For more information, click here.

SSP Fellows Program: The SSP Fellows 2011 application period is now open. This is your chance to be one of ten high school teachers competitively selected from across the country. The SSP Fellows Program provides funds and training to selected U.S. science and math teachers who serve under-resourced students, to enable interested and motivated students to perform high-quality independent scientific research.

NSF Computing Education for the 21st Century: The National Science Foundation (NSF) has a new program, called Computing Education for the 21st Century (CE21). The intent of CE21 is to fund collaborations that include expertise in computer science education, broadening participation in computing, and research on teaching and learning. A meeting will be held on January 31-February 1 in New Orleans, and travel funds are available for a limited number of attendees. For more information, click here.
