The NASA Office of Space Science has developed a comprehensive approach to providing education and public outreach to enhance the understanding of space science. The Initiative to Develop Education through Astronomy and Space Science (IDEAS) Grant is a funding opportunity that stems from this effort. The spirit of IDEAS is to provide start-up funding to explore innovative, creative ways to integrate astronomy and space science into K-14 education in the United States through partnerships between the astronomers, space scientists, and education professionals. Awards of up to $50,000 will be made to selected education programs.
