Looking for assistance with designing you broader impacts, engagement or outreach plan? Try the online tool - The Broader Impact Wizard
The Broader Impact Wizard (http://coseenow.net/wizard/) software is a five-step process that helps scientists determine the best engagement, education and public outreach plan to translate their research broadly. The final product of the program is an outline of important points to incorporate into your Broader Impact statement, including detailed objectives, examples of relevant educational literature to include, and an evaluation plan for the proposed project.
Or you may want to consider the Pre-Award and Post-Award Scientist Resources (http://coseenow.net/scientist-resources/) aimed at further supporting scientists in writing statements and implementing their projects. Both of these resources were developed by COSEE Networked Ocean World (http://coseenow.net/).
