NASA’s Interdisciplinary National Science Program Incorporating Research and Education Experience (INSPIRE) application process for Fall 2009 opened on May 1st and will continue through June 30th. This program encourages the next generation of explorers from the 9th through 12th grade to pursue an education and career in the sciences, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields.

The centerpiece of INSPIRE is the Online Learning Community (OLC) where students can interact with peers, NASA experts and education specialists. It also provides grade-level educational activities, chats and a discussion board, allowing students and their families to explore the many careers and opportunities at NASA. As a member of the OLC, students may compete for the following years’ summer STEM experiences.
