INSPIRE VLF-3 RADIO RECEIVERS
Since 1989, INSPIRE has provided radio receiver kits to over 2,800 students and other groups within the United States and internationally to make field observations of VLF signals. The INSPIRE VLF-3 receiver is designed to receive radio waves in the 0-10 kHz frequency range, which is audible to the human ear when converted sound waves by either speakers or headphones.

Co-founded in 1989 by Dr. William W.L. Taylor, former Chief Scientist for Space Station Freedom at NASA headquarters and a pioneer in science education and public outreach, The INSPIRE Project provides creative hands-on opportunities for students of all ages to observe Very Low Frequency waves (i.e. lightning and other atmospheric sounds) by using the INSPIRE VLF-3 Natural Radio Sound Receiver. In addition to coordinated field observations, INSPIRE partners with NASA to give science workshops at local high schools and universities in Washington, DC. INSPIRE students receive hands-on, real world experience and a higher degree of learning in the fields of physical sciences. INSPIRE also seeks to enhance educators in their knowledge in the field of space science to encourage our next generation of scientists.
