Science Education CAN, Amendment 1: The due date for Notice of Intent to Science Education CAN has been delayed to March 9, 2015, to allow more time for those affected by recent weather-related events. 

The goal of NASA SMD Science Education is to enable NASA scientists and engineers into the learning environment more efficiently and effectively for learners of all ages.  This CAN is to meet the following NASA SMD Science Education Objectives: Enabling STEM education, improving U.S. science literacy; advancing National education goals; and leveraging science education through partnerships.  NASA intends to select one or more focused, science discipline-based team(s).  While it is envisioned that multiple agreements may be awarded, selection of a single award to support all of SMD science education requirements is not precluded.  Awards are anticipated by September 30, 2015.

NOIs to Science Education CAN (NNH15ZDA004C) are now due March 9, 2015.  This is a requirement for those submitting proposals. The proposal due date remains unchanged at May 4, 2015.
