Are you looking for a way to make your school or classroom Maker Space a reality, seeking a few more devices to facilitate an engaging and exciting classroom project, or wanting to try a cutting-edge innovation that is so new you missed your school's budget cycle? Apply for an ICE mini-grant!

We ask you to tell us:

  • what you want to do
  • how it is innovative for your school, what it will cost to implement
  • how many students will be impacted and 
  • some other necessary information

Your project must meet our guidelines and demonstrate innovation and the potential to benefit students.  All submissions will be reviewed by multiple readers based on criteria listed in our guidelines document, linked below. 

Mini-Grant Applications are due November 01, 2016!
