A chance to work with NASA scientists and engineers designing a mission to Mars!

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 adventure starts this fall with an online course and culminates – for students who earn the opportunity – with an all expenses paid onsite summer experience at NASA’s Johnson Space Center.

Application process opens on September 10, 2019 and closes on October 23, 2019.
