CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — The New Hampshire Department of Education is offering competitive grants to public schools and public charter schools to set up robotics teams and participate in contests.

“Robotics is a great way to reinforce academic concepts while also fostering curiosity among children, promoting teamwork and improving critical technology skills,” said Frank Edelblut, commissioner of education. “These grants will provide more New Hampshire students with the opportunity to embrace STEM concepts and learn through imaginative play and engineering.”

The estimated budget for each proposal is $2,000 to $15,000. Applications will be scored by independent peer reviewers.

To be eligible, schools must have an established partnership with at least one sponsor. Proposals must include participation in at least one competitive event.

The deadline for applications is Dec. 10.
