Request a Grant Writer

Grants to South Dakota teachers and educators to advance robotics education. Funding is intended to support the formation of new robotics teams, promote the implementation of new programs, and encourage 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. 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.
