STEM EDC – Pledge Support

This is an unprecedented unique opportunity for our National Youth Science Foundation! The National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has invited the NYSF to submit a proposal to assume ownership of the facilities of the Canaan Valley Institute near Davis, Tucker County, West Virginia; the NYSF must simply show that it has the financial means to maintain and operate the facilities for the long-term. The STEM Education Center would become the centerpiece of the NYSF’s future campus, the National Center for Youth Science Education (NCYSE). NCYSE is the planned future permanent home of the National Youth Science Camp and additional programs.

We need your enthusiastic support NOW in order to make this dream a reality!

Constructed in 2009 by CVI with $18,000,000 in funding from NOAA, CVI’s campus consists of 2 buildings on 37 acres; the Research and Education building is LEED-certified (Silver level).

NOAA’s request for proposal requires that the NYSF present a financial plan that provides for operation and maintenance for the long-term. The NYSF needs to secure pledges totaling $150,000 for each of the next 5 years to qualify for this unique opportunity.
