Families Learning Across Boundaries (FamLAB)

Idaho Expands Early STEM work with National Grant Support

the Joan Ganz Cooney CenterIdaho was honored to be awarded a Spark Grant called Families Learning Across Boundaries (FamLAB) from the Joan Ganz Cooney Center at Sesame Workshop. The overarching goal of the FamLAB Project is to create an ecosystem that enables and encourages young children’s learning across settings, especially children from underrepresented populations.

FamLABThe goal of the Spark Grants Program is to identify, support, and promote innovative approaches to help children and youth ages 3–12 learn more deeply across home, community, and school settings. To do so, the program will activate a cross-sectoral community of researchers, practitioners, and developers to explore new ideas, with a special emphasis on the potential of media and technology to facilitate learning across boundaries. The 2018-2019 program is providing grants to US-based non-profit organizations and educational institutions to undertake innovative research and development (R&D) work, design capacity-building tools, and lead community engagement projects. These one-year grants are intended to spur knowledge development and experimentation, including the launch of a network of leaders who will exchange best practices and plan future activities.
