Hi All –

I don’t know if I’ll be able to keep up, but I thought it might be interesting to post one idea a day for possible STARS / Donor’s Choose project proposals.

Check out this cool one!!  I’m going to a PI meeting for STARS in D.C. August 20th, and this workshop is one of my options to check out.  Dates: “July 01, 2014 – December 31, 2014” – Could it BE more perfect?  I know it says that the deadline for application is July 1st, but if anyone is REMOTELY interested in participating, let me know.  I’ll see if extensions are possible.  Looks awesome to me!!

April (Y.F.L.)


Innovate to Mitigate (innovatetomitigate.org) is a competition for middle and high school students to design a method for combating climate change by reducing greenhouse gas emissions. The goal of the competition is to engage teams of students in project-based learning either in or outside the classroom as they design and test a prototype that reduces CO2 and demonstrate that it is effective. Projects can relate to chemistry, environmental science, social science, or behavior change. Interdisciplinary teams of students are welcome! At the end, they will create a video and poster presentation for an online conference. Scientists will judge the presentations; $1,000 in prizes will be awarded. The deadline for application is JULY 1st, but space is limited in this first pilot of the competition to 20 teams, so it will be first-come, first-served. The competition will close in December (2014). Contact Gilly Puttick (gilly_puttick [a] terc [dot] edu or 617-873-9712) for information or to register.
