Idaho Science and Aerospace Scholars (ISAS) program needs Idaho high school juniors. Application will close November 13, 2017. ISAS is an interactive, online experience highlighted by a seven-day residential summer academy at Boise State University and NASA Ames Research Center. Students will explore science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) concepts, with an emphasis on space exploration, during their online experience with Idaho Digital Learning. Students who are selected to come to Boise State University and NASA Ames Research Center will continue their STEM studies with hands-on team activities while mentored by STEM professionals and Master teachers. ISAS is a great opportunity for Idaho high school juniors. It’s out of this world.
