STEM Innovation Grants
STEM innovation grants expand the implementation of effective programs related to STEM and propose innovative approaches or programs that provide professional
development to transform instruction within the STEM disciplines.
Math in Real Life
Adaptive Math Learning Pilots
The Oregon STEM Council in collaboration with the Oregon Department of Education (ODE) intends to conduct a series of pilot tests of adaptive math learning
technologies in Oregon classrooms grades K to 8. An adaptive learning technology is software that can personalize education for a student, adapt based on student
interaction, and provide feedback to teachers about student progress. Funds will be awarded to schools to pilot previously identified adaptive math learning
Here are some facts you need to know about the status of this work and your involvement with it:
- Districts will be asked to identify 2-3 products to pilot during the 2016-17 school year. Successful applicants may receive up to $20,000 per student cohort
piloting each product.
- Click here to begin reviewing provider information. Please begin by
reading the READ ME FIRST document.
- All questions and comments about individual products should be directed to the providers, as they will be best positioned to discuss their products and how
they may apply in your particular learning environment.
Digital Literacy and Computer Science Innovation
The Digital Literacy and Computer Science Innovation grant is focused on developing a state plan for computer science education. The plan will include a network of teachers who will
develop and deliver long-term professional development leading to the creation of new CTE Programs of Study in computer science.
Out of School STEM Innovation
The purpose of this project is to fund one or more out of school time providers that have the capacity to ensure STEM opportunities are made available to
historically underserved students across the state.
