Funding from the Duke Energy Foundation allows NCSciFest staff to produce STEM activities and resource kits for use by elementary schools across the state. This program is designed to help you host a fun science event for your students and their families with the use of a kit that includes hands-on activities aligned with K-5 Science Standards, a planning guide, activity instructions, materials for up to 200 participants, and the support of NCSciFest staff.
The Duke Energy Foundation sponsorship funds a limited number of kits to award at no charge. These are awarded to schools using an application process that includes a review of school need, demographics, geography, and past participation.
Please discuss the program and application with school administrators and staff before applying. If you have questions, please contact the NCSciFest team by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or phone (919-962-3274).
Application deadline is August 31, 2021. Schools will be notified on September 3, 2021 and are expected to confirm their committment to hosting an event by September 10, 2021 due to the limited number and high demand. Kits will ship in mid-February, 2022.
