As agency and program priorities, broadening participation research and efforts to attract, prepare and support a diverse STEM workforce are of great interest. As such, the aim of this webinar is to provide guidance to project teams that are interested in pursuing research and development work in which broadening participation within informal STEM learning contexts is a primary goal. The two AISL broadening participation related solicitation-specific criteria will be unpacked and portfolio exemplars will be shared.
In this webinar, AISL Program Officers will highlight:
- essential elements that should be in every strong AISL proposal,
- proposal deficiencies to avoid, and
- key differences between a highly competitive proposal and a proposal that is not competitive.
This will also be an opportunity to ask questions and receive responses from AISL Program Officers in real time. The webinar will take place on September 19 from 2-3 PM EDT.
InformalScience.org is a curated collection of project, research, and evaluation resources designed to support the informal STEM education community working in a variety of learning environments. This session will provide useful tips and suggestions for using the site while developing proposals, from conducting literature searches to identifying potential collaborators.
The new NSF Advancing Informal STEM Learning (AISL) solicitation (NSF 17-573) was released in July. NSF Program Officers will present a webinar on the solicitation on Thursday, August 24 from 2:00-3:30 PM EDT.
