The Idaho State Department of Education is pleased to inform you that the SDE has a NASA grant to provide a program for students who are interested in science, math, aerospace and engineering. The Idaho Science and Aerospace Scholars (ISAS) Program is a competitive program that challenges Idaho’s high school juniors to take an engaging online course in Space Exploration that teaches a broad range of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) skills aligned with Idaho Content Standards. The course was developed by NASA, Idaho Digital Learning Academy and the State Department of Education. Based on their course performance, students may be selected to participate in an all-expense-paid, week long residential Summer Academy at Boise State University and NASA Ames Research Center in California. If your student meets the qualifications he/she has the opportunity to participate in this outstanding program. Information about the program and applications are available at http://www.sde.idaho.gov/site/
The applications are due December 20th. Should your student be selected, he/she would enroll through IDLA at his/her local public high school for the coursework. If you have any questions about the application process, please feel free to contact Val Schorzman at 208-332-6920 or VJSchorzman@sde.idaho.gov or Sarah Poe at 208-332-6956 or email@example.com We hope your student has an outstanding year.
