Grants of up to $1,000 to USA K-12 teachers to bring the funding source's innovative computer science, engineering, and entrepreneurship projects to their classrooms. These projects were created in collaboration with select educators and include interactive guided tours, detailed project plans, and opportunities for comments and discussion with other educators.
The purpose of these grants is to help ADE enhance the replicability of the DIY Guides described above, as well as their adaptability to a range of school types, locations, and grade levels. Toward that end, the funding source is looking for teachers who work in school environments different from those of the ADEs who created them.
Each grant amount will be calculated based off of the fixed and variable cost of the selected DIY with a $200 teacher stipend. The equation is: (Fixed Cost) + (Variable Cost * # students) + $200 teacher stipend.
When possible, ADE will highlight your implementation of the DIY guide on the ADE website, social media channels, or other outlets.
