Proposal Submission for K3-K8 Outreach

The Information Theory Society would like to encourage K3-K8 activities that highlight basic concepts in information theory, as part of a new initiative in 2020. This would include outreach using age-appropriate approaches that leverage social media, such as cartoon videos, as well as more traditional development of pedagogical materials to be shared with places such as children museums and summer camps. Some funding (of up to 3K per project) would be available to support such activities, until the available funding is exhausted. Although we will accept proposals up to August 2020, proposals received earlier will have a higher chance to receive funding if needed.

Proposal content Clearly describe in detail the proposed activity, the connection to the area of information theory, as well as providing any associated financial assistance information.
