To provide additional guidance during the application process, we are offering weekly virtual Design Labs for you to talk directly with peers and National Geographic Society staff for ideation, inspiration, and technical support. Design Labs will be 90 minutes and capped at 30 participants per session to allow for conversation and breakout rooms led by expert educators. We will provide an overview of the grant, share tips and resources, answer questions, and engage in conversation to help you think through your ideas, next steps, and how you can be successful in this process. These sessions will not be recorded.
If interested, please submit this form and we will send you an invitation to register for an upcoming open Design Lab session that fits your schedule.
