Tomorrow: Collaborate to Increase a Grant’s Impact
At 5 p.m. (ET) on October 20, 2015, the GetEdFunding community on edWeb.net will host a webinar titled “How to Multiply the Impact of Your Grant: Divide the Work By Collaborating with Other Institutions,” sponsored by CDW•G. In this webinar, two grant writers who have won major grants to help fund “big ideas” for their institutions will share what they learned in the process. Teachers, district administrators, university faculty, nonprofit leaders, and others interested in collaborating on grants will benefit from the ideas and strategies in this session. The webinar will offer ideas for collaborating with educators in other institutions or nonprofits to increase the impact of a grant. Participants’ questions will be answered during this live, interactive session, and the webinar will be recorded and archived in the GetEdFunding community for members to access after the event.
Bring 3D Printing into the Classroom
Can your school use a 3D printer? K–12 and higher education campuses have an opportunity to win a 3D printer and a $5,000 grant, thanks to a new contest sponsored by Stratasys in partnership with Campus Technology and THE Journal. Schools interested in participating must submit a 500-word essay outlining what a 3D printer would mean to their campuses.
