Request a Grant Writer

Grants of up to $10,000 to South Dakota teachers and educators to advance robotics education. Funding is intended to support the formation of new robotics teams, the implementation of new programs, and the expansion and improvement of classroom curriculum and programming.

The NASA South Dakota Space Grant Consortium offers the Daniel Swets Robotics Materials Award in memory of the unprecedented enthusiasm and vision that Dr. Dan Swets brought to the state of South Dakota in the field of robotics. Dr. Swets, founder of the South Dakota Robotics Association, saw the value of robotics in recruiting students into science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) at an early age. He strove to provide those opportunities for students throughout their educational career. 

Not only does this help young people in science and engineering in general, but it also produces high quality students that NASA is looking toward to help fulfill its mission.
