Instructional Materials Development
This National Science Foundation (NSF) program supports the development of instructional materials and assessment tools to improve science, math, and technology education in grades K-12. Projects might range from the substantial revision of existing materials to the creation of new ones, and from addressing a single topic to the integration of several. Projects should "promote the development of model programs that demonstrate the educational effectiveness of technology in urban and rural areas and economically distressed communities." State and local education agencies are among those eligible to apply--but you had to have submitted a preliminary proposal by May 1.
