The Virginia Association of Science Teachers honors one of their own by establishing "The Shirley Sypolt Memorial Mini-grant in Elementary Education."
Awardees will be selected by the VAST Awards and Grants committee. The committee will be looking for projects that will directly impact student learning in the elementary science classroom.
Ideally, the projects that are funded will provide the students with new experiences and make possible new scientific investigations.
To apply, simply complete the Google form here: https://forms.gle/MJGgtFKPgt6XKPKF7
Applications are due by September 30 of the current calendar year and applicants must be a member of VAST.
