The NDSGC offers several opportunities for North Dakota educators:
All informal and formal educators must be US Citizens and employed at a North Dakota school to be considered for funding. Educators who mentor a precollege competition team (i.e. FIRST Robotics teams) do not need to be US Citizens.
Please note that all NDSGC awards are made from federal grant funds and awards cannot be concurrent with other federal grant funding awards made to individuals. By applying for this funding, you certify that the activities (stipend, salary, fringe, materials, supplies, travel, etc.) supported through the NDSGC are not supported through additional federal funding during the same period of performance. Any questions regarding this requirement can be directed to the NDSGC Team.

At-Home STEM Kits
The NDSGC is committed to providing Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) support to students across the state of North Dakota. Our At-Home STEM Kits allow students to conduct a simple STEM activity wherever they live, with adult supervision. All kits are free and require minimal supplies. Please read through and complete this form if you would like an At-Home STEM Kit to be mailed to a North Dakota address.
Women in STEM Role Model
Attention North Dakota students! Did you know that female students are underrepresented in the majority of STEM fields? It's time to bring visibility to our fields: let us know who your female STEM role model is! Participate in the ND Space Grant's "Women in STEM Role Model" series for a chance to be featured on our social media pages.
Educators and caregivers, this is also a great activity to do with your students! Use our editable PDF or print out our worksheet, then submit the worksheet (or a picture of it) to firstname.lastname@example.org!
The North Dakota Space Grant Consortium STEM Pal program allows students to submit a letter to a STEM Ambassador. The goal of STEM Pals is to encourage communication and cultivate curiosity in the fields of STEM. Letters can be in the form of a paper letter, an email, a voice memo, or a hand-drawn picture. Students can ask a STEM Ambassador any questions they may have about Science, Technology, Engineering, Math, or college life as a STEM student. Please fill out this form to begin correspondence.
STEM Ambassador Visits
To promote Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) across North Dakota, the North Dakota Space Grant Consortium established the STEM Ambassador program. STEM Ambassadors are undergraduate and graduate STEM students that conduct hands-on activities with North Dakota students, families, and communities. Please complete our form if you would like to have a STEM Ambassador visit your K-12 classroom. The goal of these visits is to encourage communication and cultivate curiosity within the fields of STEM.
