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.
