Open Call for STEAM Installation Proposals.
The Bisbee Science Exploration & Research Center (BSERC), in collaboration with Central School Project, is posting its first call for proposals, encouraging science-minded and arts-centric persons to work independently or collaboratively (our preference, but not required) to design, build, and install an interactive STEAM exhibit on the theme FOOD. The call opens May 15th with a pre-proposal Q&A meeting on May 23rd, 5:30 p.m., at Central School Project. The Q&A session is not required to propose but is intended help clarify any ambiguities regarding the call parameters and guidelines and allow potential collaborators to meet. Proposals are due June 14th by 5:00 p.m.
BSERC will convene evaluators who will recommend exhibit selection(s) (one or two) to the Board of Directors. Cash awards, up to $3,000, will be provided for selected exhibits in support of the development of the project and its creators. The interactive exhibits will open on September 14th at the Bisbee Science Lab and will be on display at the Lab until mid-December. Proposers may agree to allow BSERC to include the exhibit in a travelling show to rural communities and schools in Cochise County and selected locations across Arizona.
For more information on how to propose, see the links provided below. Submissions must be constructed as outlined in the Guidelines and include the provided budget and questionnaire forms.
