NASA is now accepting applications from students who will be in the 9 – 12th grades during the 2011-2012 academic year for INSPIRE, The Interdisciplinary National Science Project Incorporating Research and Education Experience.
Johnson Space Center is actively recruiting students for our 8 state region of Colorado, Kansas, Nebraska, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Dakota, and Texas.
INSPIRE is designed to encourage students to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics, 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 experiences provide students with a hands-on opportunity to investigate education and careers in STEM disciplines. More details can be found on the 2011 NASA INSPIRE Flier and by following the links below.
The deadline date is June 30, 2011. NASA will make selections for the program in September.

Please share this information with any students you know who would benefit from this experience.
