Description

The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to provide opportunities for eligible small business concerns (SBCs) to submit SBIR grant applications to develop interactive digital media science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) resources that address student career choice and health and medicine topics for: (1) pre-kindergarten to grade 12 (P-12) students and pre- and in-service teachers ("Teachers") or (2) Informal science education (ISE), i.e., outside the classroom, audiences. Interactive digital media (IDM) are defined as products and services on digital computer-based systems which respond to the user's actions by presenting content such as text, moving image, animation, video, audio, and video games. There is a large body of evidence that IDM technology has the potential to support learning in a variety of contexts from primary and secondary schools, to universities, adult education and workplace training. IDM is widely used to train, educate, and encourage behavioral changes in a virtual world format where progressive learning, feedback on success and user control are combined into an interactive and engaging experience. It is anticipated that this SBIR FOA will facilitate the translation of new or existing health and medicine-based, P-12 STEM curricula and museum exhibits into educational Interactive Digital Media STEM (IDM STEM) resources that will provide a hands-on, inquiry-based and learning-by-doing experience for students, teachers and the community.

03/06/2019

Description

The Improving Undergraduate STEM Education: Hispanic-Serving Institutions (HSI Program) seeks to enhance the quality of undergraduate STEM education at HSIs and to increase retention and graduation rates of undergraduate students pursuing degrees in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) at HSIs. In addition, the HSI Program seeks to build capacity in undergraduate STEM education at HSIs that typically do not receive high levels of NSF grant funding. The National Science Foundation (NSF) established the HSI Program in response to the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2017 (P.L. 115-31) and the American Innovation and Competitiveness Act (P.L. 114-329). The HSI Program is aligned with NSF’s commitment to increase access for underrepresented groups to the Nation’s STEM enterprise. In designing the HSI Program, NSF sought community input by several mechanisms (https://nsf.gov/ehr/HSIProgramPlan.jsp) and has continued to gather community input to inform future components of, or modifications to, the HSI Program. To be eligible for HSI Program funding, the institution serving as the awardee organization must, at the time of application, be accredited, offer undergraduate educational programs in STEM, and satisfy the definition of an HSI as specified in section 502 of the Higher Education Act of 1965 (20 U.S.C. 1101a). Institutions should review the legislation before certifying their eligibility for this program (http://legcounsel.house.gov/Comps/HEA65_CMD.pdf). The HSI Program will accept proposals in two tracks: Track 1: Building Capacity funds projects up to $2,500,000 for up to 5 years and is open to all eligible institutions. This track has three priority areas: Critical Transitions; Innovative Cross-Sector Partnerships; and Teaching and Learning in STEM. Track 2: HSIs New to NSF funds projects up to $300,000 for up to 3 years and is open only to eligible institutions that have never received NSF funding, or that have not received NSF funding in the five years preceding the proposal deadline.

Description

An innovative science, technology, engineering, mathematics and computing (STEM+C) workforce and well-educated citizenry are crucial to the Nation's prosperity, security and competitiveness. Preparation for the future workforce must begin in the earliest grades from preK-12, where students need to learn not only the science and mathematics central to these areas, but also how computational thinking is integral to STEM disciplines. Because of the powerful innovation and application of computing in STEM disciplines there is an urgent need for real-world, interdisciplinary, and computational preparation of students from the early grades through high school (preK-12) that will provide a strong foundation for mid-level technical careers and for continuing education in higher education. This is particularly important in the key science areas described in the National Science Foundation’s Big Ideas for Future NSF Investment. The STEM+C program supports research and development proposals related to new approaches to pre-K-12 STEM teaching and learning related to Harnessing the Data Revolution, Convergence Research and the Future of Work at the Human-Technology Frontier. The STEM+C Program focuses on research and development of interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary approaches to the integration of computing within STEM teaching and learning for preK-12 students in both formal and informal settings. The STEM+C program supports research on how students learn to think computationally to solve interdisciplinary problems in science and mathematics. The program supports research and development that builds on evidence-based teacher preparation or professional development activities that enable teachers to provide excellent instruction on the integration of computation and STEM disciplines. Proposals should describe projects that are grounded in prior evidence and theory, are innovative or potentially transformative, and that will generate and build knowledge about the integration of computing and one or more STEM disciplines at the preK-12 level. A proposal submitted to this program description should describe the integration of computing with one or more STEM disciplines. A proposal may focus on studies on the effects of integrating computational thinking with STEM disciplines or the challenges of implementing these potentially disruptive educational interventions. Proposed projects may develop models, assessments, and technological tools to support teaching and learning in this area as well as conduct research on these models, assessments, and tools. Outcomes of projects should enable the Nation to have a future workforce with knowledge of computational thinking integrated with STEM disciplines, and students prepared and interested in careers in the skilled technical work force or further education and science careers.

Description

The Department of Navy (DoN) Historically Black Colleges and Universities/Minority Institutions (HBCU/MI) Program aims to increase the quantity and quality of minority professionals in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) in the defense community. Research conducted at Minority-Serving Institutions (MSIs) for the DoN HBCU/MI Program: • Enhances the research and educational capabilities of HBCU/MIs in scientific and engineering disciplines critical to the defense mission of the DoN, • Encourages cross-institutional, collaborative participation of HBCU/MIs in naval-relevant research, development, testing, and evaluation (RDT&E), and • Increases the engagement of students, including underrepresented minorities, in STEM fields important to the defense mission. This FOA is executed under policy and guidance of the DoN HBCU/MI Program and is administered by the Office of Naval Research (ONR). This FOA seeks to support research efforts that will contribute to the science and technology (S&T) mission and vision of the U.S. Navy and the U.S. Marine Corps while simultaneously expanding the research capacity of participant institutions and engaging students in STEM. In that regard, this FOA is intended for white papers and invited proposals from HBCU/MIs exploring basic, naval-relevant research. The technical content of any idea must align with the following research areas of interest as outlined by the Naval Research Development Framework. Information, Cyber, and Spectrum Superiority An increasingly interconnected force with more rapid and effective decision-making is enabled by persistent sensing, advanced data analytics, digital integration, and assured spectrum access. In that regard, this research area spans three strategic areas: • Assured Command and Control (C2) • Electromagnetic Maneuver Warfare (EMW) • Full Spectrum Cyber technologies Assured Command and Control (C2): Assured C2 is enabled by persistent sensing, timely intelligence, and decision support tools that will accelerate “data to decisions” timelines. Leveraging machine reasoning and data analytics, an end-to-end approach achieves protected data transport, resilient networking, and assured apps and services that result in trusted information and actions. The need for increased spectral efficiency and diversity, coupled with the information domain, is critical to our naval freedom of maneuver on a global scale. Electromagnetic Maneuver Warfare (EMW): EMW efforts include electromagnetic spectrum management technologies and techniques that fluidly combine communications, surveillance electronic warfare (EW), and electronics to understand and shape the battlespace. Ultra-wide bank systems, which continuously monitor the spectrum, are needed to facilitate optimized use. Intrinsically secure and resilient computing systems with robust computational and communications architectures will provide the capability to manipulate and interpret rapidly growing amounts of data support of C2, Combat Systems (CS), and Intelligence Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) effects. Assuring secure access to the full spectrum is essential to operate at will or deny adversary access in more complex and dynamic future EMW environments. Full Spectrum Cyber technologies: Full-spectrum Cyber approaches must be developed to protect our networks, data, information systems, and real-time control systems. Total platform cyber protection is becoming an essential element of Information Warfare. Cyber technologies provide the ability to assess and counter potential threats. Future information systems must provide agile capabilities for achieving and maintaining communications and data integrity in rapidly evolving, dispersed, and disadvantaged environments. Computational architectures need more resilient information infrastructure through assured system design, automated defensive tools for advanced persistent threats, hardening of the hosts, and data assurance. Applicable Research Interests: • Advanced RF electronics and materials • Communications and networking • Computational methods for decision making • Data science and analytics • Electronic warfare • Sensors and sensor processing • Machine learning, reasoning, and intelligence • Resource optimization • Precision navigation and timekeeping Mission Capable, Persistent, and Survivable Sea Platforms Concepts, systems, and component technologies that improve the performance and survivability of naval ships/submarines in an increasingly distributed yet interconnected force are critical. New platforms will need to deliver advanced weapons, as well as increased mobility and survivability. Power and energy for surface ships is a key, enduring investment for the efficiency of legacy platforms, while enabling the power requirements of future electric weapons. High-power electric weapons and sensors have advanced significantly, creating technical requirements for dramatic increases in energy management and pulsed power. Computational tools that model the platform’s interaction with the anticipated operational environment are essential to the development of integrated designs and protections such as stealth, counter-directed energy weapons, tactical decision aids, electronic warfare, and hard-kill systems. Undersea dominance remains a priority as the Navy designs and builds the next generation of strategic and tactical submarines. Resurgence by peer adversaries in ultra-quiet submarine technology is closing the gap in undersea warfare. Platform mobility and survivability is critical to successful operational strategies calling for more distributed forces. Advancements in materials, acoustics, and intelligent control are required in addition to hydro-, electro-, and computational mechanics. Advancements in countermeasures for ships and submarines are also critical. Platforms will become more self-sustaining to extend endurance and forward presence while reducing the logistics tail for fuel. Future platforms must have reduced sustainment requirements and be easier to maintain. Efforts are focused on platform interfaces as well as platform efficiency to reduce sustainment needs. Enhanced interface standards and modularity provide flexibility, ease of maintenance, and upgrades. Finally, affordability permeates all modernization concepts. The development of validated design tools capable of rapidly and accurately analyzing and evaluating novel platforms with advanced system performance characteristics is a high priority. Applicable Research Interests: • Naval engineering • Advanced naval power systems • Advanced survivable sea platforms • Unmanned sea platforms, autonomy, and power • Advanced naval materials • Undersea weapons, counter-weapons, and energetics • Sea platform environmental quality • Corrosion control Aviation, Force Projection, and Integrated Defense Sea-based aviation, including platform and weapons research, is focused on new or enhanced capabilities to defined against, and/or deter, disable, damage, defeat, or destroy adversaries at extended ranges and speeds. Offsetting technologies must continue to provide naval forces with an edge in any future battle. In the future battlespace, electric weapons with deep magazines and low cost-per-kill will be required to engage large numbers of threats simultaneously. Directed-energy systems will be used in layered defense to counter ISR capabilities, defeat or destroy threats, both before and during combat. Networked weapons will improve the probability to kill and reduce the need for multiple weapons targeting the same platform. Advanced warhead materials will decrease the size of rounds. Electromagnetic realigns will allow more, smaller, and longer-range rounds. Future naval fires efforts include targeting, decision support and precision strike by air, surface, undersea, and expeditionary forces. Improved aerodynamic control will allow unprecedented maneuverability for unconventional aircraft designs. Advanced aircraft power and propulsion technologies, such as variable-cycle advanced technology, will provide more efficient operation over a wider range of flight conditions. They will also enable technologies for providing the power and thermal management of electric weapons for next-generation aircraft. Advances in structures and materials will allow for reduced life-cycle costs as well as stronger and lighter airframes. Autonomous systems will reduce operational risk and improve mission performance. For today’s missions, autonomy can improve manning effectiveness and provide options for mission tasks. For future missions, autonomy can provide new persistent, pervasive, and rapid response capabilities to do tasks that would be unaffordable or impractical today.

The EIR program,established under section 4611 of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act,as amended (ESEA), provides funding to create, develop, implement, replicate,or take to scale entrepreneurial, evidence-based, field-initiated innovationsto improve student achievement and attainment for high-need students; andrigorously evaluate such innovations. The EIR program is designed to generateand validate solutions to persistent education challenges and to support theexpansion of those solutions to serve substantially larger numbers ofstudents. The central design element ofthe EIR program is its multi-tier structure that links the amount of funding anapplicant may receive to the quality of the evidence supporting the efficacy ofthe proposed project, with the expectation that projects that build thisevidence will advance through EIR's grant tiers: “Early-phase,” “Mid-phase,”and “Expansion.” Applicants proposing innovative practices that are supportedby limited evidence can receive relatively small grants to support thedevelopment, implementation, and initial evaluation of the practices;applicants proposing practices supported by evidence from rigorous evaluations,such as an experimental study (as defined in this notice), can receive largergrant awards to support expansion across the country. This structure providesincentives for applicants to: (1) Explore new ways of addressing persistentchallenges that other educators can build on and learn from; (2) build evidenceof effectiveness of their practices; and (3) replicate and scale successfulpractices in new schools, districts, and States while addressing the barriersto scale, such as cost structures and implementation fidelity. All EIR projects are expected to generate informationregarding their effectiveness in order to inform EIR grantees' efforts to learnabout and improve upon their efforts, and to help similar, non-EIR effortsacross the country benefit from EIR grantees' knowledge. By requiring that allgrantees conduct independent evaluations of their EIR projects, EIR ensuresthat its funded projects make a significant contribution to improving thequality and quantity of information available to practitioners and policymakersabout which practices improve student achievement and attainment, for whichtypes of students, and in what contexts. The Department awards three types of grants under this program:“Early-phase” grants, “Mid-phase” grants, and “Expansion” grants. These grantsdiffer in terms of the level of prior evidence of effectiveness required forconsideration for funding, the expectations regarding the kind of evidence andinformation funded projects should produce, the level of scale funded projectsshould reach, and, consequently, the amount of funding available to supporteach type of project. The Departmentexpects that Expansion grants will provide funding for implementation andrigorous evaluation of a program that has been found to produce sizable,significant impacts under a Mid-phase grant or other effort meeting similarcriteria, for the purposes of: (a) Determining whether such impacts can besuccessfully reproduced and sustained over time; and (b) identifying theconditions in which the program is most effective. Expansion grants are supported by evidencethat demonstrates a statistically significant effect on improving studentoutcomes or other relevant outcomes based on strong evidence (as defined inthis notice) from at least one well-designed and well-implemented experimentalstudy for at least one population and setting, and grantees are encouraged toimplement at the national level (as defined in this notice).

Early-phase grants must demonstrate a rationale. These Early-phase grants are not intended simply to implement established practices in additional locations or address needs that are unique to one particular context. The goal is to determine whether and in what ways relatively newer practices can improve student achievement and attainment for high-need students.

Description

Increasingly, undergraduate computer science (CS) programs are being called upon to prepare larger and more diverse student populations for careers in both CS and non-CS fields, including careers in scientific and non-scientific disciplines. Many of these students aim to acquire the understandings and competencies needed to learn how to use computation collaboratively across different contexts and challenging problems. However, standard CS course sequences do not always serve these students well. With this solicitation, NSF will support teams of Institutions of Higher Education (IHEs) in re-envisioning the role of computing in interdisciplinary collaboration within their institutions. In addition, NSF will encourage partnering IHEs to use this opportunity to integrate the study of ethics into their curricula, both within core CS courses and across the relevant interdisciplinary application areas.

Description

The purpose of this funding opportunity announcement (FOA) is to replicate programs that have been proven effective through rigorous evaluation to reduce teenage pregnancy, behavioral risk factors underlying teenage pregnancy, or other associated risk factors. Phase I Tier 1 projects will identify how to bring effective programs to scale and build the knowledge base on understanding what elements/components/factors are important to broad program success. Applicants should replicate one or more effective programs in a community(ies) and/or among populations identified by current federal statistical reports as being most vulnerable to teen pregnancy, STDs, multiple partners, and other risks associated with sexual activity. Applicants may also select a community(ies) and/or populations within the community that have not experienced declines in teenage pregnancy or other associated risk factors commensurate with national declines. Applicants are expected to propose to serve age groups most likely to engage in sexual risk behaviors. While younger adolescents may be included in the project, OAH expects that services will also focus on adolescents 15-19 years of age, recognizing the importance of reinforcing healthy decision-making throughout adolescence. Each selected community must be defined by clear geographic boundaries in order to assure that the number of youth served can be identified and rates of teenage pregnancy and other associated risk factors can be monitored.
