Program Description: The Interdisciplinary National Science Project Incorporating Research and Education Experience, or INSPIRE, is a multi-tiered project for students and their parents or legal guardians.

Applications are now being accepted for INSPIRE's online community from students in the 9th to 12th grades (and college freshmen) through December 31. NASA's mission provides the content for the online community. Resources, activities and educational modules add relevancy to courses being taught in high school. Activities include participation in video teleconferences with NASA scientists, design competitions, and learning modules. The online community allows students to interact with other students with similar interests, to ask questions and to share knowledge, thus building a Community of Practice. The online community will also offer support for parents to help them better champion their student's goals. Once selected for the online community, students will be invited to compete for the unique grade appropriate summer experiences ranging from a 1 day VIP tour and workshops, a 2 week on-campus collegiate experience, and paid summer internships. Participating students must be in grades 9-12 or in their freshman year of college. 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.
