NSF may be combining the DRK-12 and MSP programs in the near future
The DRK-12 program seeks to enhance the learning and teaching of STEM by preK-12 students, teachers, administrators and parents. The emphasis in DRK-12 is on research projects that study the development, testing, deployment, effectiveness, and/or scale-up of innovative resources, models, and tools.
DRK-12 invites proposals that address immediate challenges facing preK-12 STEM education as well as those that anticipate a radically different structure and function of preK-12 teaching and learning. DRK-12 especially encourages proposals that challenge existing assumptions about learning and teaching within or across STEM fields, envision the future needs of learners, and consider innovative ways to support learning.
There are four strands described in the solicitation: 1) Assessment; 2) Learning; 3) Teaching; 4) Scale-up.
Note: NSF anticipated funding $40M of new projects in 2012, which assumed a number of awards at < maximum budget allowed.
Allows researchers an opportunity to clarify concepts, assemble theoretical/conceptual foundations, preform early investigations or focus on adapting innovative resources, models, tools and/or prototypes.They are generally short in duration, produce empirical evidence which is basis for future research.
Built from promising exploratory work, this award allows for a longer term, more in-depth study that reaches a broad audience.
Awards fund focused conferences, symposia and workshops which produce usable information for researchers or practitioners.
In 2012, a portfolio overview of the first four cohorts of projects funded by DRK-12 was published. 91% of the 272 eligible projects met the criteria for the study, which asked:
