NASA’s Interdisciplinary National Science Project Incorporating Research and Education Experience, or INSPIRE, is a multi-tiered, year-round program for students in grades 9-12 and their parents or legal guardians. Applications are due June 30, 2009.
INSPIRE provides grade-appropriate, NASA-related resources and experiences to encourage and reinforce students’ aspirations to pursue science, technology, engineering and mathematics, or STEM, education and careers. The project also offers resources and information for parents to help them better champion their student’s goals. INSPIRE provides participants a rich online community, as well as opportunities to compete to participate in NASA/STEM experiences.
INSPIRE participants will be matched to one of the 10 NASA facilities, based on the participant’s place of residence and the NASA facility’s Area of Service.
