Welcome, North Dakota Educators!

This is the NDSGC application for Classroom Visits. 

Classroom Visits are often conducted by NDSGC STEM Ambassadors. Read more about the STEM Ambassadors on the NDSGC STEM Ambassador landing page.

Please note:

  • Once your request has been submitted, the NDSGC Team will contact you to discuss a classroom visit further.
  • Filling out this form does not guarantee you a visit.  We will do our best to align STEM Ambassador's schedule and availability.  Please allow 4-6 weeks from classroom visit for scheduling.
  • All STEM engagements are conducted by STEM Ambassadors, North Dakota college students.  Their responsibilities are to deliver quality STEM education, not classroom management.  Classroom educators are expected to be responsible for students' behavior.

Please contact the NDSGC Team with any questions or concerns about Classroom Visits.

If you would like to be part of a North Dakota Space Grant Consortium (NDSGC) and the North Dakota NASA Established Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (ND NASA EPSCoR) electronic mailing list, please complete this form.

If you have any technical difficulties while you complete the Submittable form, please contact the customer support team.

Please note that all NDSGC awards are made from federal grant funds and awards cannot be concurrent with other federal grant funding awards made to individuals. By applying for this funding, I certify that the activities (stipend, salary, fringe, materials, supplies, travel, etc.) supported through the NDSGC are not supported through additional federal funding during the same period of performance. Any questions regarding this requirement can be directed to the NDSGC Team.

To promote Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) across North Dakota, the North Dakota Space Grant Consortium (NDSGC) established the STEM Ambassador program. STEM Ambassadors are undergraduate and graduate STEM students that conduct hands-on activities with North Dakota students, families, and communities.

Please complete this form if you would like to have a STEM Ambassador chat with your K-12 classroom. The goal of these visits is to encourage communication and cultivate curiosity in the fields of STEM.

Note: 

  • Teachers must submit at least 7 questions for the STEM Ambassadors to answer and discuss during their visit, we want our STEM Ambassadors to be prepared for classroom conversation. 
  • Having our STEM Ambassador conduct a hands-on STEM activity is an option. 
  • All visits are dependent on STEM Ambassador availability.


If you have a vision for how you want a STEM Ambassador visit to happen, let us know!

NDSGC will contact you, after your submission, to set a time and date for the visit. Please allow up to 3 weeks for all arrangements to be made.
