Who We Serve
Have you ever considered a future career in science, technology, engineering, or math? Explore the fun and interesting possibilities within STEM through one of our programs. Challenge yourself to sharpen your creative thinking and apply your problem-solving skills.
Teaching STEM is not rocket science… oh wait, it actually can be if you are in an iSPACE rocketry workshop! We want to empower educators by building confidence for teaching STEM topics through workshops and resources that will aid in the development and implementation of engaging lessons and dynamic learning experiences for students.
STEM education isn't just for students - and neither is iSPACE. Our corporate development program brings the STEM principles of critical thinking and interdisciplinary collaboration to the workplace. We'll help your organization think broadly, critically, and scientifically, all while having fun!
What people are saying about their iSPACE experience
I was in the educator class last year and just wanted to give an update! So after a full year of using iSPACE activities to supplement (and many times lead) my science teaching this year, the kids had an amazing time!! Plus, I got the feeling that the 5th grade test scores will probably improve over last year! Everything that we did last year really helped me focus on the important aspects and things the students needed to know, but then using more STEM activities also put these aspects to life! Whether it was looking at the size of planets with the clay, or creating a light maze, or even just reading a book to introduce or reinforce some of the vocabulary or topics, the kids loved it!!! So thank you and your team for all you did and gave to us! It really not only helped me, but my students as well!Louie Ratterman, Teacher, Hays Porter School
“This was AWESOME!”
“I learned that I am the future!”
“I learned that I am going to be becoming a scientist because this truly inspired me.”
“I have a strong love for aviation and this made my life!”
“I like aviation and want to be a part of it in the future.”GE Girls in STEM program participants
What a wonderful experience for my daughter! She loved being at iSPACE camp this year! I am so thankful for all she learned! The programs at iSPACE are wonderful! What is better than learning and having fun at the same time! Thank you so much to all the staff.Camp Parent 2018
My students love learning about science and STEM this year. They cheer when I say it is time for science.Lisa Von Holle, Amanda Elementary, Middletown, iSPACE STEM Educator Academy Participant
Recently, four of our students participated in iSPACE Camp. To say that they enjoyed this experience would not scratch the surface of their excitement. This new experience has encouraged our students to be creative thinkers and have a strong desire to explore the sciences even more!Ashley Garland – Rockdale Academy
I had the opportunity to talk with the students that attended and hear the joy in their voices and see the smile on their faces when they shared their favorite experiences. They were so excited to share their experiences of coding and building robots or learning computer gaming code.
They shared that these were experiences that they had never had before or even knew existed! These experiences have encouraged them to think out of the box for their future career paths and showed them something new to continue as a hobby!
Thank you for supporting our kids and helping them experience the world! You are truly changing the lives of kids.
We appreciate everything you do and your generosity!
I cannot thank you, Bev, Sharon and The Dater Foundation enough for your generosity and amazing support of Camp Uplift. The iSPACE presentation at camp was amazing! All of the campers really enjoyed this lesson and everyone participated, there was so much laughter and joy as the kids worked together on their projects. All of the kids really expressed how much they loved this time at camp!Maureen Scahill, Camp Uplift Director, Dragonfly Foundation
Thank you again for helping make Camp Uplift such a huge success and helping bring such a fun and educational experience to our campers!
Thank you for a wonderful experience at the rocket launch event. The students had such a wonderful time learning about rockets, making them and launching them. Your staff was exceptional and patient — making the time a memorable one.Cari Kelly, Educator, The Springer School
These programs [summer camp and FTC] have tremendously expanded my options for my future and opened my mind to several new career options that I have never really thought of pursuing such as careers in STEM like computer sciences and programming oriented towards robotics. The camp at iSPACE was an excellent experience that was fun-filled, memorable and opened up a world of new educational opportunities.Anusha Komaragiri, Student, University of Cincinnati
I was looking for a field trip that would help my students experience, hands-on, some of the science concepts I was teaching in class. The iMISSION experience not only did this but also incorporated other skills such as problem-solving, teamwork, communication, math, etc. My students were engaged and excited the entire time. The organization by the staff and their enthusiasm made this trip one of the most exciting field trips I have taken.Mike Michalak, 5th Grade Teacher, Mason City Schools
My students and I LOVED the field trip to iSPACE! I have never been on a field trip where 100% of the students were engaged 100% of the time and LEARNED so much! The iMISSON program is so engaging and includes so many of the STEM skills we are working so hard to implement.Bridget Moore, 5th Grade Teacher, Boyd E. Smith Elementary
