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. A MULTIMEDIA APPROACH TO TEACHING SCIENCE TO SPANISH-SPEAKING JR. HIGH STUDENTS WITH LIMITED ENGLISH-PROFICIENCY

    SBC: Icd Corp            Topic: N/A

    THIS RESEARCH PROJECT FOCUSES ON DESIGNING A PROGRAM THAT APPLIES MODERN PRINCIPLES AND PRACTICES OF TESL, BILINGUAL EDUCATION, AND SECOND LANGUAGE INSTRUCTION TO TEACHING SPANISH-SPEAKING JR. HIGH SCHOOL LEP STUDENTS SCIENCE CONCEPTS IN THE CONTEXT OF AN INTERACTIVE MULTIMEDIA ENVIRONMENT. SUBJECT CONTENT, PEDAGOGICAL ISSUES, AND TECHNOLOGICAL CONSIDERATIONS ARE EXAMINED TO DETERMINE THE SCOPE OF ...

  2. A KNOWLEDGE-BASED TUTORING SYSTEM WITH STUDENT-DRIVER, GRAPHIC INTERFACE, FOR TEACHING ARABIC ON MICROCOMPUTER

    SBC: New Sage            Topic: N/A

    NEW SAGE WILL DEVELOP SOFTWARE THAT CAN TEACH BEGINNING ARABIC (AND PERSIAN) SKILLS. THE SYSTEM WILL BE A RESPONSIVE, STUDENT-DRIVEN, INTERACTIVE LEARNING ENVIRONMENT USING MACINTOSH COMPUTERS. KEY TO THE DESIGN IS THE INTEGRATION OF SEVERAL KNOWLEDGE BASES INTO THE INSTRUCTIONAL DESIGN: 1) A RICH (BUT NOT LARGE) DICTIONARY -- FOR KNOWLEDGE OF WORD MEANINGS, 2) LINGUISTIC RULES -- FOR GENERATION A ...

  3. A PERSONAL COMPUTER CONTROLLER FOR MULTI-HANDICAPPED BLIND INDIVIDUALS

    SBC: WESTEST ENGINEERING CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    PERSONAL COMPUTERS ARE NORMALLY CONTROLLED BY ENTERING DATA INTO A KEYBOARD AND MONITORING THE RESULTS ON A VIDEO TERMINAL. MANY PEOPLE WHO ARE PHYSICALLY HANDICAPPED CANNOTUSE KEYBOARDS AND VIDEO TERMINALS ARE NOT SUITABLE FOR THE BLIND. EXISTING DEVICES WHICH HELP THE HANDICAPPED OVERCOMETHESE BARRIERS ARE EITHER SLOW AND CUMBERSOME OR USE CUSTOM SOFTWARE WHICH RESTRICTS THEIR USE. WESTEST ENGIN ...

  4. REMOVAL OF SULFUR OXIDES AND NITROGEN OXIDES FROM FLUE GAS BY CATALYTIC CONVERSION USING REDUCED ZIRCONIA

    SBC: Advanced Ceramic Research            Topic: N/A

    EMISSION OF SULFUR OXIDES (SOX) AND NITROGEN OXIDES (NOX) IN FLUE GASES IS A MAJOR CAUSE OF AIR POLLUTION AND ACID RAIN. CURRENT TECHNOLOGIES FOR SOX REMOVAL ARE EXPENSIVE AND CUMBERSOME. SULFUR DIOXIDE IS CONVERTED TO SULFURIC ACID, WHICH IS VERY CORROSIVE AND DIFFICULT TO STORE AND TRANSPORT. REMOVAL OF NOX IS ACCOMPLISHED BY CATALYTIC CONVERSION USING PLATINUM CATALYSTS. PLATINUM CATALYSTS ARE ...

  5. A FEASIBILITY STUDY FOR THE PRODUCTION OF SPECIFICATIO-GRADE ASPHALT FROM UTAH TAR SANDS

    SBC: James W. Bunger And Associates            Topic: N/A

    UTAH CONTAINS SIGNIFICANT RESOURCES OF TAR SANDS WHICH, IF DEVELOPED, COULD BECOME AN IMPORTANT COMPONENT OF THE NATION'S REQUIREMENTS FOR PETROLEUM PRODUCTS. THE ECONOMICSFOR PRODUCTION OF SYNCRUDE FROM UTAH TAR SANDS HAVE HISTORICALLY BEEN JUST BEYOND THE RANGE OF PROFITABILITY. PRODUCTION OF ASPHALT, HOWEVER, APPEARS TO BE PROFITABLE TODAY. CAPITAL AND OPERATING COSTS FOR PRODUCTION OF ASPHALT ...

  6. STABLE CARBON ISOTOPE AND RESTRICTION FRAGMENT LENGTH POLY MORPHISM TECHNOLOGIES FOR IMPROVEMENT OF WATER-USE EFFICIEN-CY OF C3 PLANTS

    SBC: Native Plants Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE LACK OF EFFICIENT TOOLS TO IDENTIFY GENOTYPES OF SUPERIOR WATER-USE EFFICIENCY (WUE) HAS LED TO LITTLE PRACTICAL SUCCESS IN IMPROVING CROPS WITH REGARD TO THIS VERY IMPORTANT TRAIT. HOWEVER, STABLE CARBON ISOTOPE ( (13)C) ANALYSIS IS PRESENTLY EMERGING AS A POTENTIALLY HIGHLY EFFICIENT MEANS OF EVALUATING PLANTS FOR WUE, ALTHOUGH THE TECHNOLOGY HAS NOT YET BEEN APPLIED TO CROP DEVELOPMENT. IN ...

  9. SOLID-STATE CLINICAL GAS ANALYZER

    SBC: Albion Instruments            Topic: N/A

    A SMALLER, LIGHTER, MORE EFFICIENT, AND MORE RELIABLE CLINICAL GAS ANALYZER FOR RESPIRATORY AND ANESTHETIC GAS MONITORING IS NEEDED. EXISTING LASER RAMAN-BASED INSTRUMENTATION USES A LARGE, HEAVY, AND EXTREMELY INEFFICIENT (0.1 PERCENT) ARGON ION LASER WITH AN INTRACAVITY GAS CELL. THE LONG-TERM OBJECTIVE OF THIS STUDYIS TO IMPLEMENT A SOLID-STATE ALTERNATIVE TO THE EXISTING ION LASER. SUCH A LASE ...
