The SEPA Program
The Science Education Partnership Award (SEPA) Program funds innovative K-12 STEM and Informal Science Education (ISE) educational projects. SEPA projects create partnerships among biomedical and clinical researchers and K-12 teachers and schools, museums and science centers, media experts, and other educational organizations. SEPA K-12 resources target state and national K-12 standards for STEM teaching and learning and are rigorously evaluated for effectiveness. SEPA is sponsored by the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
