The Captain Planet Foundation (CPF) is offering ecoTech Grants of up to $2,500 to support inquiry-based projects in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields that leverage technology or use nature-based designs to address environmental problems in local communities. Previous projects have involved integrating robotics and sensors to explore water bodies, collect data, and organize cleanups; renewable energy design challenges; and biotechnology research. Ideally, projects should be youth led and project based, and should integrate technology to address an environmental problem that results in real, demonstrable environmental outcomes. Interested applicants will find this grant opportunity on GetEdFunding, a free database sponsored by CDW•G of thousands of funding opportunities for educators.
