RELEASE: 08-180


WASHINGTON -- NASA's Office of Education at headquarters in Washington 
has announced three new extramural funding opportunities that could 
result in the award of grants or cooperative agreements. 

One of the three funding opportunities is the K-12 Competitive Grants 
Opportunity, a competitive education grant program targeting 
secondary school level teaching and learning, with grants being 
awarded to U.S. public schools and non-profit organizations. The goal 
of the opportunity is to seek out and support new, innovative, and 
replicable approaches to improving science, technology, engineering 
and mathematics (STEM) learning and instruction. This will leverage 
NASA's unique contributions to STEM fields. 

The second area is the Global Climate Change Education Opportunity. 
The goal of this competitive project is to improve the quality of 
global climate change and Earth system science education at the 
elementary, secondary, and undergraduate levels. Each funded proposal 
is expected to take advantage of NASA's unique contributions in 
climate science to enhance students' academic experiences and improve 
educators' abilities to engage and stimulate their students. 

In the third area of opportunity, NASA is making available funding for 
a competitive program for science museums, science-technology centers 
and planetariums to enhance programs related to space exploration, 
aeronautics, space science, Earth science or microgravity. The Office 
of Education has contracted the external peer reviewer proposal 
evaluation process to NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, 
Calif. Authority for final award selections rests with NASA
