Awards starting at $25,000 to USA and territories and Canada nonprofit organizations and universities for programs that synthesize K-12 STEM education and environmental stewardship and sustainability. Funding is intended to increase the impact of existing innovative programs that use the environment as a pathway to STEM education. The program is designed to empower the next generation of leaders to connect with the natural world, develop science-based sustainable solutions for local communities, and nurture a capacity for social responsibility.
Eligible programs should promote:
- Advance STEM Learning: Successful programs promote science learning for young people through research and investigative experiences. STEM learning is prioritized, with an emphasis on creative approaches to problem solving and critical thinking. Ultimately, this activity will help young people acquire 21st century skills.
- Civic Engagement and Social Responsibility: Successful programs focus on environmental health, and the fair treatment and involvement of all people and communities in regards to the environment, to engage individuals in community and safety issues. They demonstrate a commitment to disseminating these solutions to people who will benefit from the information. Programs articulate the top civic priorities of their communities and why it is a social responsibility to address them. They encourage active civic engagement by serving as role models for their partners and the community.
- Solutions for Environmental Challenges: Successful programs have identified an environmental challenge in a specific community or region, designed or engineered solutions, and have applied those STEM-based solutions to the issues. Successful programs can demonstrate how they have tackled environmental problems using STEM solutions, and promoted those solutions to others
Several important priorities reflect the vision of the award:
- Replicability and Scalability
