Announcement of Opportunity to Participate in NASA’s Summer of Innovation Project

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration is requesting information from entities interested in participating in its Summer of Innovation project. SoI engages the nation’s middle school youth in intensive science, technology, engineering and mathematics experiences that will have an impact on their academic performance, choice of STEM coursework, degree programs and, eventually, career path. NASA is looking for partners to develop creative ways to help achieve one or more SoI goals and to increase the impact and visibility of SoI.

NASA is receptive to a wide range of creative partnership possibilities. Respondents may include, but are not limited to, the following: for-profit companies; universities and other academic institutions; libraries; informal or nonprofit organizations; professional or public organizations; and federal agencies.
