Idaho Science and Aerospace Scholars (ISAS) is a competitive program that allows high school juniors to take an engaging online NASA-developed course on Space Exploration through Idaho Digital Learning that teaches a broad range of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) skills aligned with Idaho Content Standards.
The best part was walking in the world’s largest wind tunnel at NASA Ames. We also got to go in a human sized centrifuge and look at some flight simulators. The coursework itself is somewhat challenging, but the teachers were always willing to help and offered a great deal of easy to obtain extra credit for anyone who was willing to put in a little extra time and effort. – Jessica Klein, graduate of INSPIRE and now freshman at U of I who participated in ISAS two years ago
