InSPIRESS is a STEM outreach program based at
The University of Alabama in Huntsville
The Innovative System Project for the Increased Recruitment of Emerging STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) Students (InSPIRESS) is an outreach project that provides the opportunity for high school students to develop and design a scientific payload to be accommodated on a spacecraft which is designed by undergraduate students in the UAHuntsville IPT project.
Laying the foundations of engineering via competition and mentorship
High school students develop an understanding of engineering requirements such as design process and partnership with customers via collaboration with undergraduate engineering students. InSPIRESS teams compete for selection by the undergraduate engineering teams. This process gives high school students a head start for college, and insight into the job field for their futures.
