Daniel Swets Robotics Materials Award Apps Due

Daniel Swets Robotics Materials Award ($6,000) – NASA South Dakota Space Grant:

The NASA South Dakota Space Grant Consortium invites applications for the 2019 (starting in November or December) “Daniel Swets Robotics Materials Award”.  We anticipate providing $6,000 in award funding under this call-for-applications.  This funding is open to South Dakota teachers and informal educators of U.S. citizenship who either have: A) taken robotics training or plan to take robotics training and want to begin new robotics programs and teams, or B) have sustained robotics programs/curriculum in their classrooms or at their schools.

Preference will be given to: 1) applications that would start new robotics programs and teams (e.g., at a school that didn’t have one before), as opposed to augmenting existing robotics programs, 2) robotics programs at the Middle School level, and 3) applications from teachers/educators who have not won any prior robotics or other teacher awards provided by SD Space Grant in the past 12 years.  The 2019 Application and Instructions are downloadable at the following website (after November).  Applications must be received by January 17, 2019.
