NASA Seeks 11th Graders in Texas for Free Program

High School Aerospace Scholars (HAS) applications are now open! HAS is a once-in-a-lifetime experience for Texas high school juniors to explore careers at NASA, learn about what they might want to study in college, and unite with like-minded students across the state. Following a series of online lessons, the highest achieving students will be invited to an all-expenses-paid, week-long visit to NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston during the summer. Selected participants will plan a mission to Mars while receiving guidance from NASA scientists and engineers. Both the online and onsite portions are free to participants.
