The ASM Materials Education Foundation awards 20 grants of $500 annually to help K–12 teachers bring the real world of materials science into their classrooms. “Living in a Material World” grants are intended to recognize creativity and enhance awareness of materials science and the role that materials play in society. Applicants should describe a hands-on, curriculum-based K–12 project involving student observation, teamwork, mathematics, and science skills that enhance student awareness of the everyday materials around them. Interested applicants will find this grant opportunity on GetEdFunding, a free database sponsored by CDW•G of thousands of funding opportunities for educators.
