Captain Planet Foundation Accepting Applications for Ecotech Grants

The Captain Planet Foundation is accepting applications from schools and nonprofit organizations for its Ecotech Grant program, an initiative to support projects that motivate children through the science, technology, engineering, and math fields while challenging them to reimagine the way their world can be.

Twenty $2,500 grants will be awarded to schools or nonprofit organizations for projects that use innovation, nature-based design, or technology to address environmental problems in their communities. Ideal projects integrate environmental education with opportunities for children to solve real-world problems by using science practices and technology to help care for the environment. Projects may replicate successful models or create new and innovative approaches.

Preference will be given to applicants who have secured $2,500 in matching funds or in-kind contributions. In addition, priority will be given to student-directed projects that provide materials that will make the project easy to replicate, including lesson plans, protocols, videos, adaptations, and examples of student work.

To be eligible, applicants must be schools and nonprofit organizations based in the United States. Project leaders must be employed at the same school or organization for the duration of the proposed projects.

See the Captain Planet website for complete program guidelines, information about last year’s grant recipients, and application instructions.

Deadline: January 15, 2019
