Project Splash is an exciting opportunity hosted by the Pacific Northwest Girls Collaborative Project to bring underwater LEGO™ robotics programs to the Pacific Northwest. The 2013 Project Splash Educator Training will work with participating organizations to teach robotics curriculum, exemplary practices in gender equity and engineering messaging, and strategies and tools for implementing a summer camp for middle and high school girls. The training will include a three-day in-person workshop plus three informational webinars to prepare organizations and their instructors for Summer 2013 camps.

Project Splash is the regional implementation of a National Science Foundation funded project under the Innovative Technology Experiences for Students and Teachers (ITEST) program. The Pacific Northwest Girls Collaborative Project, with lead organization EdLab Group, are disseminating the curriculum across the Pacific Northwest as part of this NSF grant. 

 As part of the Project Splash educator cohort, your staff will have access to online support and course management tools, curriculum and additional resource materials. Participating programs are also eligble to rent kits as they are available. Following the training, your organization will receive guidance and support throughout the planning and implementation of your one-week robotics summer camp.

  • Send two instructors to the three-day Project Splash Educator Training (March 18 - 20, 2013)
  • Have at least one representative at each of the three training webinars
  • Implement a one-week camp in Summer 2013
  • Serve 20 girls in rising 7th-12th grade
  • Participate in evaluation activities

You will receive a response e-mail notifying you of your application submission.

Contracts are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. Applicaitons close on February 6, 2012.
