As a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization we need your support to help inspire students to pursue STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) education and careers. Our unique problem-based learning programs have demonstrated improved academic performance and created career awareness. You can help students and educators prepare and master the skills needed for the 21st century.
While our programs do charge fees, these often do not cover the true costs associated with the programs, especially where we’re working with needy children and schools. We depend on generous donations from individuals and businesses to provide these programs to those who perhaps need them the most.
Together we can bridge the gap between the needs of the technically oriented and innovation driven businesses and the availability of highly trained graduates. Your donation and continued support helps to make an impact in our community as well as in individual students and educators.
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!”

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
