Diigo Links 04/04/2007 – The K-12 Science Tech Grant Edition

Being the good doobie that I am, I decided it was time to take action when my wife Michelle started telling me how much she would love to enrich her classes by integrating more technology in the form of microscopes that can take digital images and connect to a projector, tablet PCs for drawing and developing in real-time with her class, perhaps even an Integrated White Board. So I began searching through back issues of E-School News and looking online for grants that we could apply for as funding in her district is pretty much non-existent. The links that follow are the superficial ones I found on short notice and some deadlines have already passed but I included them as they appeared to be annual grants and so it would give me time to prep for the next round.

Please feel free to contribute your own links if there are grants out there that you are aware of. Specifically, the grants should support science, education and technology through the purchase of appropriate technology (hardware, software, subscriptions to online resources) and/or training.

Some of the links below aren’t grants but rather awards for exemplary teaching. I’m biased but I think my wife rocks when she tells me about some of the wild projects and activities she does in her classes to get them excited about science. So now I just have to translate that into something that an award committee would value. I welcome suggestions as I am a n00b when it comes to grantwriting and awards!

Enjoy!
