CLOSED

Announcement: $2,000 in funding is available for Science Technology Mathematics and Engineering (STEM) Education Grants for the Fall semester 2019. This funding is available to K-12 teachers in Northern New Mexico counties identified below.


Dear Educator:


We know through our experience that partnerships promote lasting relationships and impact many citizens. Partnering with Los Alamos National Laboratory, its managing partner TRIAD, and Century Bank, the Bradbury Science Museum Association is announcing a continuation of its successful STEM grant program for Northern New Mexico Teachers. We hope your participating in this grant program will enhance your ability to increase STEM activities for your students.

NEW for the Fall 2019 semester! Century Bank, Los Alamos National Laboratory (TRIAD), and The Bradbury Science Museum Association (BSMA) will make 20 STEM education grants (up to $100 each) available. Certified teachers in the seven Northern New Mexico counties listed below may apply. These STEM grants are intended to fund STEM learning activities for students that teachers would otherwise be unable to provide.

Spring 2020 grants are planned as part of this partnership.

Grants must address activities designed to promote STEM education in the classroom and should be described in reasonable detail in the application form below.  Once the 20 grants are allotted for the fall semester, no more will be available until the spring semester. Grants must directly support STEM classroom activities.

  • Grants must be submitted by using the application form on the BSMA website and are due on October 20, 2019. Grants will be awarded in November 2019.
  • Grants must not be used for professional development, attending workshops or training.
  • Grants are available for all schools in the following New Mexico counties: Los Alamos, Mora, Rio Arriba, Sandoval, San Miguel, Santa Fe and Taos.

What can you do with the money?

Here are some examples of activities that teachers who received grants in the Spring of 2019 used their grant funding for:

School   Project Title
Barranca Elementary, Los Alamos 3D Blocks
Fairview Elementary, Espanola Coding
Taos High School Marshmallow Catapults, Bubbles and Hot Wheels

Barranca Elementary, Los Alamos
Introduction to Hands-On Coding and Programming in 3rd Grade
Taos Middle School Textbooks for Enrichment Coding
Eños Garcia Elementary, Taos  Ecology Field Trip

Please submit the application form below through our website. Teachers may only receive one STEM grant per semester of the current school year. Your application will be reviewed by a committee of the BSMA Board of Directors, and you will be notified via email if you were selected to receive a grant.
