Guide to ETIC/OPAS Grant Opportunities, 2011-2014

October 4, 2013

Welcome! ETIC and the OPAS Initiative are excited again this biennium to offer grant opportunities in In-class pre-engineering, out of school time pre-engineering and computer science, and new this year is Engineering Design in Oregon Science Classrooms, a professional development program for all Oregon science teachers.

For information and questions for all ETIC/OPAS grants, please contact Jo Oshiro ( jo_oshiro@ous.edu ) 503-725-2910.

Progress and final grant reports should be submitted to: ETIC-Reports@ous.edu

Engineering Design in Oregon Science Classrooms (EDOSC)

The EDOSC program is a colloboration of the Oregon University System and the Oregon Department of Education. Engineering Design is a learning process in the current Oregon Science Standards. It sits alongside Science Inquiry as a way for students to learn science content and to understand how science is used to solve real-world problems. The upcoming Next Generation Science Standards take science inquiry and engineering design a step further by articulating scientific and engineering practices and integrating them into performance expectations.

The Oregon University System invites districts and schools in Oregon to apply for $2,000-$20,000 grants to partially support their participation in a professional development program designed to prepare Oregon teachers to incorporate hands-on engineering design projects and processes into their current science curricula.

Engineering Coaching and Mentoring Program (eCHAMP)

eCHAMP is designed to capture the successful model of K-12 athletics to support and empower the development of high performing high school engineering programs.  The program invests in teachers to enable them to champion after-school Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (“STEM”) programs.  A fundamental goal of the eCHAMP program is to promote school district funding of teacher stipends and startup costs in support of competitive STEM after-school activities.

Project Lead the Way (PLTW)

PLTW is a nationally recognized program offered in many high schools across the country.  It gives students the opportunity to learn about engineering and technology in an academically rigorous way while simultaneously teaching them about the connections between engineering and traditional math and sciences courses.  The OUS and ETIC want to make it easier for Oregon middle and high schools to adopt PLTW curriculum by underwriting some of the start-up costs.  Grantees will be expected to train teachers, purchase equipment, and prepare facilities in preparation for PLTW classes to be conducted during the 2013-2014 school year.
