STEM + Computing Partnerships (STEM+C) NSF 17-535

As computing has become an integral part of the practice of modern science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM), the STEM + Computing Partnerships program seeks to address the urgent need to prepare students from the early grades through high school in the essential skills, competencies, and dispositions needed to succeed in a computationally-dependent world. Thus, STEM+C advances the integration of computational thinking and computing activities in early childhood education through high school (pre-K-12) to provide a strong and developmental foundation in computing and computational thinking through the integration of computing in STEM teaching and learning, and/or the applied integration of STEM content in pre-K-12 computer science education.

Anticipated Funding Amount:

  1. Exploratory Integration: up to $1,250,000 for up to 3 yrs
  2. Design and Development: up to $2,500,000 for up to 3 yrs
  3. Field-Building Conferences and Workshops: up to $250,000 for up to 2 yrs.
