RFP: STEM Teacher Shortage in CT
- An RFP to address the secondary math, science and computer science teacher shortage in Connecticut
- June 20–July 31
We are excited to team up with 100Kin10 partner, the Peter and Carmen Lucia Buck Foundation (PCLB), to address the second grand challenge around effectively preparing teachers to teach STEM subjects in the state of Connecticut.
Through this request for proposals, PCLB is looking for one 100Kin10 partner that is interested in establishing long-term relationships and, eventually, a robust presence in Connecticut to increase the secondary math, science, engineering, and/or computer science teaching force. Funds of up to $125K will be available.
Proposals are due July 31. Learn more by registering for a webinar on Tuesday, June 27th at 2:00PM ET.

RFP: Efficacy of K-8 Science PD Evaluation
- A RFP for an environmental scan and gap analysis of current practices for evaluating the efficacy of K-8 science professional development evaluation.
- May 16–June 23
How might we better measure the impact of K-8 science professional development on improved teaching and/ or increased longevity in the classroom?
We are excited to team up with 100Kin10 partner ExxonMobil to explore this aspect of the fourth grand challenge around effective professional development.
Through this request for proposals, one or more 100Kin10 partner will have the chance to contribute to the field’s understanding of current PD evaluation practices; the efficacy of those practices; and the opportunities that exist for improvement.
Funds of up to $50K will be available to conduct an environmental scan and gap analysis, and to develop a white paper (or equivalent work product) that will be widely disseminated to the network and the field at-large.
