The vision of the South Dakota Space Grant Consortium (SDSGC) is to expand opportunities for all South Dakotans through education, research, and public service in the fields of aerospace, earth science, and supporting STEM disciplines. As the link between NASA and the citizens of South Dakota, SDSGC's mission is to instill the spirit of exploration and discovery in students and educators and in the general public, with a special focus on the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics that are essential for the development of the nation’s workforce.
Preference will be given to proposals with any or all of the following three foci, because they align more closely with NASA’s current priority education areas.
Proposals need not include all of the following over-riding themes, but themes given preference include: A) Hands-on educational experiences, B) NASA’s unique resources and capabilities, C) Diversity (individuals, institutions, management), D) Proven methodologies and a good evaluation/assessment plan, E) Leveraging and strengthening strategic partnerships, and F) Workforce development. In addition, proposals that include components associated with the following are encouraged: A) NASA’s MARS 2020 mission (“ROADS on Mars Student Challenge)”, B) Sanford Underground Research Facility (SURF) Education & Outreach school visits, summer camps, and curriculum kits, and C) multi-consortia high-altitude student ballooning team partnerships.
