Many educators envision a “dream” learning space where materials, resources, and tools truly enhance the instructional experience for every student. What could that space include? A variety of manipulatives for hands-on learning, interactive displays for dynamic collaboration activities, and STEM equipment like 3D printers to boost creativity. Of course, the “reality” budget doesn’t always align with the “dream” classroom. Educators have learned to look outside of school budgets to acquire the materials needed to keep the fires of learning motivation going. For example, Grants.gov is a valuable resource for finding various federal grants that can be searched by category, funding, eligibility, and agency. Award amounts range, and deadlines vary.
