Discovery Research K-12 (DR K-12): DR K-12 invites proposals that meet a variety of educational needs, from those that address immediate challenges facing preK-12 STEM education to those that anticipate the future when expectations, roles and resources are likely to be aligned in different ways. DR K-12 especially encourages proposals that challenge existing assumptions about learning and teaching within or across STEM fields, envision needs of learners in 10-15 years, and consider new and innovative ways to support learning. Project goals, designs, and working strategies should be informed by prior research and practical experience drawn from all relevant disciplines and they should focus on concepts and skills that are central to STEM disciplines.

Revisions to this year's solicitation include:
(1) Adjustments to the award amount and duration of Full Research and Development awards;
(2) A call for highly innovative learning materials into Strand 2 and eliminated previous Challenge 5; and
(3) New deadlines for conference and workshop proposal submissions, which may no longer be submitted at any time during the year and are now due at the same deadline as all other DR K-12 proposals.
