The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. Design Environment for Educator-Student Collaboration Allowing Real-Time Engineering-centric, STEM (DESCARTES) Exploration in Middle Grades

    SBC: Parametric Studio, Inc.            Topic: none

    DESCARTES is a game-based engineering environment where students design, test, and build projects, including boats, airplanes, and other models. The web-based student-facing environment will include challenges, topic introductions, tutorials, and tools for analyzing and improving projects. Following completion of a concept in the environment, students will then build and test real world prototypes ...

  2. Design Environment for Educator-Student Collaboration Allowing Real-Time Engineering-centric, STEM (DESCARTES) Exploration in Middle Grades

    SBC: Parametric Studio, Inc.            Topic: 1

    This project team will develop and test a prototype of Descartes, an online game and simulation platform for design-to-build engineering projects for students in grades 4 to 7. The prototype will include a virtual workspace for students to create and test models. Students will apply learning to design a boat using engineering principles, and the prototype will incorporate a 3D printer to create a ...

  8. Manufacturing Methods for Sulfur Concrete Sewer Pipe

    SBC: Brimstone Pipe Company            Topic: N/A

    This Phase I research is intended to evaluate the feasibility of manufacturing low-cost, acid-resistant sanitary sewer pipe from sulfur concrete. Sulfur is an abundant mineral recovered from coking, natural gas processing, and petroleum refining. Secondary recovery of sulfur, resulting from environmental regulation, produces more material than is needed by U.S. industry. The U.S. Bureau of Mines ...

  10. Development or Adaptation of Assistive Devices, Mechanisms, Technologies, or Techniques for Individuals with Disabilities

    SBC: Adaptive Computer Systems,            Topic: N/A

    Advancements in digital signal processing (DSP) and video technology have created an opportunity to develop a low-cost system to allow people with disabilities to control a computer using head and eye movements. A software-based system would be developed to track head and eye movements at much lower cost than the hardware-based systems currently available. The processing power available on the c ...
