  1. Dear MIPS,

    I’m a small business owner here in Maryland. I develop and manufacture English language teaching aids. The current product line consists primarily of a mechanical sentence building device. It’s called the Sentence Wheel, and it’s designed to help English students build simple declarative sentences. It has been well received by students and teachers alike. I am in the process of developing an online touch screen application of this product to meet the needs of a 21st century market place. I would be very interested in more information about MIPS grant funding.
    Thanks so much,
