Texas High School Aerospace Scholars partners with NASA to create STEM program

Students with an interest in studying Aerospace engineering can apply to High School Aerospace Scholars (HAS) through NASA’s STEM Gateway from August 28 to October 19 at 2 p.m.

Those selected will be invited to attend a five-day virtual experience where they will be mentored by NASA scientists and engineers. During this, students will plan an Artemis-themed mission to the Moon and Mars. The top two teams will then attend a two-day residential experience at NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston.

This is a great opportunity for high school juniors with a strong passion for STEM. For more information, visit NASA’s website.
