High school juniors from across HISD are invited to join NASA in exploring the moon to Mars through its High School Aerospace Scholars program.
HAS is a unique, interactive STEM experience that culminates in an all-expenses-paid, week-long visit to NASA’s Johnson Space Center during the summer. The experience begins with a 16-week online interactive course on NASA activities related to space exploration, Earth science, technology, mathematics and aeronautics. Students complete design challenges including 3D drawings, science quizzes, discussion posts, technology writings and monthly webinars with NASA scientists and engineers.
Students with the highest scores will be invited to put the training to use at NASA, where they will get guidance from scientists and engineers and work with students from across the state to complete hands-on design challenges and plan a mission to Mars.
Students are nominated by their state legislator and must be a Texas resident and U.S. citizen currently in their junior year of high school (rising seniors) with an interest and aptitude for mathematics, science, engineering or computer science.
Students can apply now through October 23, 2019. For more information and to apply, visit NASA.gov/HAS
