INSPIRE VLF-3 RADIO RECEIVERS
1989, INSPIRE has provided radio receiver kits to over 3,900 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.

In 2009, The INSPIRE Project expanded its STEM educational programs to provide scholarships and internships to educators, middle/high school students, and university students to ensure the next generation of space science and technology explorers. INSPIRE’s team is comprised of dedicated board members and advisors who volunteer his/her time to make it possible for INSPIRE to continue fulfilling its expanded mission of providing students the resources to pursue study in STEM disciplines.

are paired with a mentor at the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center to
design and complete a project focused on science and engineering
research. NASA summer internships are full-time for 10 weeks. STEM undergraduate/graduate students attending a DC college or university are encouraged to apply. CLICK HERE>
NOTE: Due to the pandemic, the summer 2022 program is suspended - we plan on resuming next summer.
INSPIRE has teamed up with the NASA
Marshall Space Flight Center, the US Space & Rocket Center, and
Washington Space Business Roundtable to offer DC educators and
administrators full scholarships to Space Academy for Educators, which
consists of a 5-day program for teachers from around the world to
participate in 45 hours of intensive classroom, laboratory and training
time, focusing on space science exploration. Scholarships for Middle and
High School students are also available. Travel expenses included. CLICK HERE>

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.
