What is the Idaho State Grant Consortium?
Today I was able to attend the Affiliate meeting for ISGC. Basically, each state has a direct connection to NASA and they work to connect amazing resources with students, teachers, and researchers throughout the state. Our Idaho Space Grant is managed by great people at UI. They work with affiliate partners including BSU, ISU, NNU, College of Idaho, and CSI, as well as Discovery Center of Idaho, EIEC, IASE, and other groups who provide support and trainings.
Please check their website at idahospacegrant.org. There are funding opportunities for all ages, and great resources for teachers.
A dedicated team from CSI was awarded a NASA ORBIT grant for two years. Part of their project includes semester long workshops for HS juniors and Seniors and CSI students. The Spring program was a great success, and applications are now being accepted for Fall semester.
