Idaho Science and Aerospace Scholars
Idaho Science and Aerospace Scholars (ISAS) is a competitive program that allows high school juniors to take an engaging online NASA-developed course on Space Exploration through Idaho Digital Learning that teaches a broad range of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) skills aligned with Idaho Content Standards.
This graded course consists of eight online units and a semester project allowing students to build their knowledge of space exploration and its relationship to Idaho STEM. Master educators will work with students online throughout the course. Based on their performance in this course, students will be invited to participate in a week-long summer academy at Boise State University and NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory in California. Students may receive one science credit for successful completion of the course. In addition students can register for dual credit with BSU to receive 2 credits for ENGR115: Idaho Aerospace Scholars course. Each credit cost $75 per credit. The IDLA class will begin January 8, 2024. Finals will be the week of May 3, 2024.
ISAS Summer Academy
ISAS Summer Academy is offered to select students. At the residential Summer Academy, students will be exposed to STEM mentors and master educators at Boise State University and NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory in California. They will undertake a mentored team simulated human mission to Mars and will be immersed in hands-on Idaho STEM activities.
