With this amendment to ROSES-2006, NASA establishes a new program element in Appendix A.24 entitled "International Polar Year (IPY) Education and Public Outreach."
This new program element solicits proposals to engage, inform, and inspire diverse public audiences by sharing our knowledge about polar science and its global connections during IPY and by communicating NASA's unique contributions to recent advances in Arctic and Antarctic research and climate science. A secondary objective is to extend the spirit of polar exploration and discovery to the poles of the Moon, Mars, and other planets of our solar system and to help attract and educate the next generation of scientists and engineers. This solicitation primarily seeks activities leveraging capabilities from existing projects or dissemination networks at zero or incremental cost for greater impact. Notices of Intent to propose are not requested, and proposals are due January 8, 2007.
On or about October 10, 2006, Amendment No. 16 to the NASA Research Announcement "Research Opportunities in Space and Earth Sciences (ROSES) 2006" (NNH06ZDA001N) will be posted on the NASA research opportunity homepage at http://nspires.nasaprs.com/ (select "Solicitations" then "Open Solicitations" then "NNH06ZDA001N").
