Discovery Research K-12 (DRK-12)

Type: Foundations
Source: National Science Foundation
Program: Discovery Research K-12 (DRK-12)
Eligibility: SF welcomes proposals on behalf of all qualified scientists, engineers and educators. The Foundation strongly encourages women, minorities and persons with disabilities to participate fully in its programs. In accordance with Federal statutes, regulations and NSF policies, no person on grounds of race, color, age, sex, national origin or disability shall be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination, under any program or activity receiving financial assistance from NSF, although some programs may have special requirements that limit eligibility.

Scientists, engineers and educators usually initiate proposals that are officially submitted by their employing organization. Before formal submission, the proposal may be discussed with appropriate NSF program staff. Graduate students are not encouraged to submit research proposals, but should arrange to serve as research assistants to faculty members. Some NSF divisions accept proposals for Doctoral Dissertation Research Grants when submitted by a faculty member on behalf of the graduate student.

Purpose: The Discovery Research K-12 Program (DRK-12) Seeks To Significantly Enhance The Learning And Teaching Of Science, Technology, Engineering And Mathematics (STEM) By PreK-12 Students And Teachers, Through Research And Development Of Innovative Resources, Models And Tools (RMTs). Projects In The DRK-12 Program Build On Fundamental Research In STEM Education And Prior Research And Development Efforts That Provide Theoretical And Empirical Justification For Proposed Projects. Teachers And Students Who Participate In DRK-12 Studies Are Expected To Enhance Their Understanding And Use Of STEM Content, Practices And Skills.

DRK-12 Invites Proposals That Address Immediate Challenges That Are Facing PreK-12 STEM Education As Well As Those That Anticipate Radically Different Structures And Functions Of Pre-K 12 Teaching And Learning. The DRK-12 Program Has Four Major Research And Development Strands: (1) Assessment; (2) Learning; (3) Teaching; And (4) Implementation Research. The Program Recognizes That There Is Some Overlap Among The Strands. Proposals May Address More Than One Strand. For Example, Projects In The Learning Strand May Also Include Assessments Of Student Learning, And/or Support For Teachers And Plans For Larger Dissemination And Use. Likewise, The Teaching Strand Has A Specific Focus On RMTs For Teacher Education And Professional Development, But These Are Often Based On A Particular Curriculum Or Set Of Instructional Materials Or Tools. The Implementation Research Strand That Replaces The Scale-up Strand In The Previous Solicitation Might Potentially Address Any Or A Combination Of The Other Three Strands. The Program Supports Three Types Of Projects: (1) Exploratory, (2) Full Design And Development, And (3) Conferences, Workshops, And Syntheses. All Three Types Of Projects Apply To Each Of The Four DRK-12 Strands.
