Einstein Centennial 2005
"Look deep, deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better." -Albert Einstein
In 1905, Einstein published four amazing physics papers, including his theory of special relativity (suggesting that light travels at a constant speed, while time can slow down or speed up!) and his famous relationship between matter and energy: E=mc2. Einstein's new ideas about the connections between space, time, matter and energy revolutionized our view of the universe we live in. Now, one hundred years later, we have a unique opportunity to celebrate the ongoing quest to understand our place in space and time.

SERCH Funding Overview

SERCH dedicates money from its budget to support education and public outreach (E/PO) initiatives , within the SERCH region, that will increase the awareness and understanding of Earth-Sun system science, solar system research and universe exploration. SERCH is particularly interested in proposals for E/PO efforts that establish strong and lasting partnerships between the Earth/space science and education communities. Central to this SERCH opportunity is that the funded projects/programs support the vision and mission of NASA, NASA's Vision for Education, the Science Mission Directorate (SMD) goals and the Support Network Forums.

Furthermore, SERCH is interested in proposals for education and outreach efforts that support the Broker/Facilitator operating principles, which include:

Establishing strong and lasting partnerships between the space science and education communities.
Highly leveraged programs/projects, relying upon a multiplier effect to reach as many communities, teachers, and students as possible.
Being inclusive of the broadest possible audience. Activities that foster the meaningful participation of underserved/underrepresented groups are encouraged.

Grants are awarded for a period of one year in amounts usually ranging from $5,000 to $10,000.
