The Discovery Research PreK-12 program (DRK-12), in its effort to significantly enhance the learning and teaching of science, technology, engineering, mathematics (STEM) and computer science by preK-12 students and teachers, is encouraging investigators through this Dear Colleague Letter (DCL) to submit proposals studying the integration of computing and/or computational thinking within disciplinary STEM learning and teaching in formal STEM education. Proposals are due November 14, 2017 (DRK-12 Solicitation NSF 17-584).

Questions about the program should be directed to Arlene De Strulle at adestrul@nsf.gov.

Note: The Advancing Informal STEM Learning (AISL) program will also accept proposals that have a focus on the integration of computing/computational thinking within disciplinary STEM learning occurring in informal settings. AISL proposals are due on November 4, 2017. For more information, visit the NSF AISL landing page on InformalScience.org.
