July 2018 Newsletter

Dear Colleagues,

News keeps coming in from NSF! They recently announced a number of ways that researchers can positively influence the future of preK-12 STEM education research: a new  STEM education advisory panel (congratulations to the DRK-12 awardees who have been named to the panel), an opening for a science education program officer in DRL (more DRK-12 projects focus on science than any other discipline read more about this in the DRK-12 Projects Snapshot below), and the NSF 2026 Idea Machine. Even if you aren't involved in one of these efforts, you can share news about your work with CADRE and your program officer, make an informational legislative visit, or support an early career researcher (find resource links below for those getting an early start on preparing to submit a CAREER proposal in 2019). If you presented a poster at the 2018 DRK-12 PI Meeting and haven't yet posted it, please send CADRE an image or PDF to add to the Virtual Poster Hall.
