Celestron Binocular Grant

Kids on a bridge look into the distance through binoculars.

Our friends at Celestron are supporting 12 classrooms who engage in participatory science or nature-based inquiry projects that could benefit from having high-quality optics. Whether you’re watching a bird feeder, going out on regular bird walks, or participating in a bio blitz, share with us how your students are practicing their science skills and what you could accomplish with a classroom set of 10 Celestron binoculars.

As a grant recipient, you will be required to share your experiences using the binoculars with the K-12 Education team through blogs and social media. Only teachers at public or private K-12 schools in the United States will be considered.

Applications are now closed. Winners will find out in January 2024.
