NSF Broader Impacts proposals and activities: The NIU STEAM team has broad experience in working with the public, educators, college students, teens and children as STEM communicators, program planners and implementors. Whether you’d like to participate in one or more of our existing programs or develop a new outreach endeavor related to your research, we can help.
Contact Amy Jo Clemens at firstname.lastname@example.org or 815-753-3942 to discuss your project’s requirements and how we may be able to assist with the proposal.
NIU STEAM can also assist with implementation if we are involved in planning.
Our programs rely on the support of our sponsors. Your donations and sponsorships help children and adults in our community learn about science, technology, engineering, artistry and math. Our programs foster lifelong learning that benefits individuals, our region and the world.
