The US National Science Foundation (NSF) released a program solicitation that sounds like a great opportunity to get some Education $$ for hackerspace based life-long learning ...


"The Advancing Informal STEM Learning (AISL) solicitation invites investigators to propose ideas, concepts, models, and other opportunities for learning and learning environments that will capture the creative and innovative potential of informal STEM learning for the future, and potentially forge new connections across all STEM learning communities. Leveraging new and emerging technologies, STEM learning can now be located and situated wherever the learner is and customized to meet the learner's educational needs. New interdisciplinary collaborations and partnerships for informal learning among academia, industry, and government can greatly advance our nation's goals to produce a scientifically and technologically literate population and workforce."

Program categories range are:
* Research (up to $1.5mil)
* Pathways (up to $250k)
* Full-Scale Dev (up to $2.5mil & 5 yrs)
* Broad Implementation (up to $2.5mil and 5 yrs)

Anyone want to collaborate on a response?
