2017 INSPIRE Scholarship Fundraiser
Help make it possible for 8 stellar STEM students to participate in Space Academy Elite and conduct Total Solar Eclipse research with NASA scientists this summer!
The INSPIRE Project needs your support for a once-in-a-lifetime STEM (Science Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) opportunity for 8 motivated and deserving Washington DC area high school students to participate in the 2017 Advanced Space Academy Elite which includes 2 days of hands-on field research with NASA scientists at Austin Peay State University for the Total Solar Eclipse on August 21, 2017 - an event that has not occurred in the United States in 38 years.

INSPIRE VLF-3 RADIO RECEIVERS

Since 1989, INSPIRE has provided radio receiver kits to over 3,000 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.
