NOAA's Ocean Acidification Program seeks to better prepare society to respond to changing ocean conditions and resources by expanding understanding of ocean acidification, through interdisciplinary partnerships, nationally and internationally. Ocean acidification is occurring because our ocean is absorbing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, leading to lower pH and greater acidity. This is causing a fundamental change in the chemistry of the ocean from pole to pole.
The Ocean Acidification Program announces is now accepting applications for its 2020 education mini-grant initiative.Topics suitable under this Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) should fill needs identified in the NOAA Ocean Acidification Needs Assessment including:
(1) Education and outreach products that incorporate data interpretation and/or visualization;
(2) Multimedia educational tools (such as video, infographics and apps);
(3) Discrete hands-on lab modules that incorporate inquiry-based learning and align with Next Generation Science and/or Common Core Standards to be used in a formal education setting; and/or
(4) Protocol or tools for ocean and/or coastal acidification citizen science programs.
Pending appropriation of funds, NOAA Ocean Acidification Program anticipates awarding between four and five education and outreach projects totaling $150,000 dollars in FY2020. Projects must have amaximum duration of two years.
