The NSF Informal Science Education (ISE) program invests in projects that develop and implement informal learning experiences designed to increase interest, engagement, and understanding of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) by individuals of all ages and backgrounds, as well as projects that advance knowledge and practice of informal science education. Projects may target either public audiences or professionals whose work directly affects informal STEM learning.

Because MU is limited to three applications for project grants in this program, letters of intent must be submitted to the Office of Research,, no later than 4:00 pm Friday, February 2, 2007. Letters of intent should be limited to 3 pages and should include 1) the type of proposal to be submitted (project, planning or conference), 2) a brief description of anticipated deliverables and the rationale for their selection, 3) the target audience and the intended impact on that audience, 4) any partner organization(s) and their anticipated role(s), and 5) how the project will advance the field of informal science education.
