The National Science Foundation is vital because it supports basic research and people to create knowledge that transforms the future. NSF is a major source of federal backing for fields like mathematics, computer science, and the social sciences. The NSF’s Discovery Research preK-12 program seeks to significantly enhance the learning and teaching of STEM through content, practices, and skills. Proposals should address immediate challenges that are facing preK-12 STEM education or anticipate major changes.
