Just a little more than two days left! Constellation is accepting proposals through Oct. 1 for the 2011 E2 Energy to Educate Grant Awards.
E2 Energy to Educate Grants are awarded to projects that reach and inspire students to think differently about energy, and that align with at least one of three focus areas:
— the basic science and engineering needed to address energy challenges;
— new energy technologies entering the marketplace;
— and the expanding role of information technology in how we efficiently manage and use energy.
In 2010, 10 projects were awarded a total of $350,000 in communities across the country. Each team-oriented, hands-on project reaches at least 100 students. The awards have supported a variety of initiatives, ranging from a project that evaluated the viability of wind energy at local schools to one that designed and built a sustainable, net zero solar-powered house.
In addition to announcing the grant opportunity, we are donating $10 to USA Science Festival for every Twitter follower that retweets our message below promoting the program:

Emerging trends in technology continue to reshape how businesses operate, no matter the nature of their industry. Small businesses can now employ technology that as recently as a few years ago was available only to larger corporations with extensive technology budgets.
According to the US Consumer Product Safety Commission, the average American spends an average of 90 percent of their lives indoors. As a result, many Americans are exposed to a wide range of indoor air pollutants over long periods of time.
