FY09 Ocean Exploration Omnibus - Education: In prior years, OE has funded the development of educational products to enable teachers to bring NOAA science into classrooms throughout the country. With this announcement, OE is seeking proposals that will facilitate the use of NOAA science in formal and informal education environments by extending the use of existing OE education products, located on its Web site http:// oceanexplorer.noaa.gov, in school districts and other learning centers throughout the country. OE is seeking pre-proposals and full proposals to support its mission, consistent with NOAA's Strategic Plan (http:// www.nrc.noaa.gov), to further ocean science education and ocean literacy. It is anticipated that a total of approximately $300,000 will be available through this Ocean Exploration Education announcement. Only ocean education proposals will be funded, any other kind of project will not be reviewed. Applicants are encouraged to visit the Ocean Explorer Web site (http://www.oceanexplorer.noaa.gov) to familiarize themselves with past and present OE-funded activities.

PLEASE NOTE: Before non-NOAA Federal applicants may be funded, they must demonstrate that they have legal authority to receive funds from another Federal agency in excess of their appropriation.
