Idaho Research Involving Student Engineers and Educators (RISE)
The Idaho Near Space Engineering Program, Idaho RISE (Research Involving Student Engineers and Educators), was initiated in 2003 and provides Idaho high school and university students with the opportunity to develop near-space flight instrumentation in collaboration with engineers and researchers at NASA Ames and JPL.
Idaho Near Space Engineering students work closely with NASA Ames and the Jet Propulsion Laboratory on the design, development, testing, and flight of prototype spaceflight hardware.
Two high schools and three universities (University of Idaho, Idaho State University, and Northwest Nazarene University) in Idaho, with undergraduate and graduate students from many different majors, participate in the RISE program.
