The National Environmental Education Foundation (NEEF) is proud to announce the awardees of the NPS-21st Century Community Learning Centers (CCLC) Greening STEM Grant.
This is the second round of grants provided under a collaborative partnership between NEEF, the National Park Service (NPS) and the US Department of Education (ED) to deliver STEM programming that engages youth from underresourced and/or underrepresented communities using NEEF’s Greening STEM model.
The grants will provide place-based after-school education programs to students participating in 21st CCLC programs, which provide federal funding for academic enrichment opportunities during non-school hours. Students will participate in citizen science, environmental monitoring, and other STEM activities at NPS sites across the country.
“We are excited to have several newly formed NPS-21st CCLC partnerships among the second cohort of grantees, which includes a couple of repeats as well,” said Robert Sendrey, program director for K-12 environmental education at NEEF.
Programming funded by these grants will utilize STEM-focused content, hands-on inquiry-based instructional strategies, professional development workshops, and collaboration and dissemination technologies to assist 21st CCLC center directors and staff in implementing and enhancing after-school and/or out-of-school STEM programs.
The following seven projects were selected to receive NPS-21st CCLC Greening STEM Grant funding:
