NASA Offers Aerospace Summer Program for High Schoolers

High school juniors interested in science and math could get an opportunity to learn about space exploration with NASA, at the annual High School Aerospace Scholars program next summer.

NASA says this enables selected Texas high school juniors to explore new frontiers and become a part of NASA’s plan for space exploration.

Students chosen for the program will apply their math and science skills to complete 10 web-based assignments during the school year, and will then travel to the Johnson Space Center in Houston next summer to put those skills to use.

At the space center, the students will design and propose a mission focused on deep space exploration alongside NASA scientists and engineers.

To apply for this unique opportunity, students must be a U.S. citizen, Texas resident, and a high school junior. They should also be studying science, math or engineering;  be able to commit to a one-week residential program at Johnson Space Center; and, oh yes, have Internet access and email.

Developed in 1999, the High School Aerospace Scholars program is designed to encourage students to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering and math.  More than 6,500 Texas students have taken part in the program since its inception.

Applications will be accepted until December 9th.  There’s more information and application forms on the program’s website:
