NASA is looking for high school students across the country who want to participate in their INSPIRE program – Interdisciplinary National Science Project Incorporating Research and Education Experience.

The year-round program is for students entering 9th through 12th grade for the 2011/2012 school year in good academic standing and an interest in science, technology, engineering and mathematics or STEM, education and careers. Students accepted into the program are given –

“…the opportunity to interact with their peers, NASA experts, and education specialists twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. Members of the OLC Discover new knowledge while exploring their interests through unique activities and challenges; Connect with subject matters experts through weekly chats and blogs, as well as their peers on an exclusive discussion board; and Equip themselves through access to resources designed to help students prepare for their future as well as information about other NASA competitions/opportunities. Even parents/guardians have a unique opportunity when their student is accepted into the INSPIRE project by providing them with resources designed to help champion their child’s education and career goals.”

Students will also be able to compete for special experiences during the 2012 summer at NASA facilities and participating universities. The experience will give students hands-on opportunities to explore careers in STEM fields. Eleventh graders can also compete for residential internships held over the summer.
