NASA INSPIRE Program Accepting Applications From High School Students – Deadline June 30, 2011

NASA is now accepting applications from students who will be in the 9th through 12th grade during the 2011-2012 academic year to be considered for the Interdisciplinary National Science Program Incorporating Research Education Experience (INSPIRE) Program.

INSPIRE is designed to encourage students to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering and math, or STEM. The centerpiece of INSPIRE is an Online Learning Community (OLC) which provides students opportunities to interact with peers, NASA engineers and scientists though grade level educational activities, discussion boards and live chats. Students selected for the OLC also have the option to be considered for unique grade-appropriate experiences that will occur during the summer of 2012 at NASA facilities and participating universities. These summer experience provide students with a hands-on opportunity to investigate education and careers in STEM disciplines. Applications are being accepted until June 30, 2011. Selections will be announced in September.
