High school juniors from across HISD are invited to join NASA in exploring the moon to Mars through its High School Aerospace Scholars program.
NASA wants today’s students to become the engineers, scientists, researchers and innovators of tomorrow. High School Aerospace Scholars offers a one-of-a-kind experience for Texas high school students to explore the possibilities of a science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) related major or career.
The experience begins this fall with an 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. Both online and onsite portions are free to participants.
Students can apply now through Oct. 21. For more information and to apply, visit NASA.gov/HAS
