Idaho's high school juniors can apply now to take part in the exciting second year of the Idaho Science and Aerospace Scholars Program.

Through this competitive program, students from across Idaho take an online course in space exploration and learn a broad range of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) skills aligned with Idaho's content standards. Based on their performance in this course, students are then selected to participate in a weeklong, all-expenses-paid, residential Summer Academy at Boise State University and NASA Ames Research Center in California.

The State Department of Education funded the initial pilot year with help and support from partners, such as Boise State University, Idaho Digital Learning Academy, Discovery Center of Idaho, Micron Foundation, Hewlett-Packard, Idaho National Laboratory, Idaho Air National Guard, University of Idaho and Idaho State University.

Students can learn more about the experience of the Idaho Science and Aerospace Scholars Summer Academy by checking out the live blog of this summer's events at The application deadline is Monday, Nov. 15.
