National Science Foundation STEM + Computing Partnerships (STEM+C) Program Solicitation


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.

This Solicitation updates NSF 16-527. The updates are as follows:
The former STEM+C Track 2 categories for funding, Computing Education Knowledge and Capacity Building and Research on Education and Broadening Participation, have been removed from the current solicitation and incorporated into the Computer Science for All solicitation.

Full Proposal Deadline: March 29, 2017
