NASA offers high school girls an aerospace program

Posted: December 14, 2012 - 12:02am  |  Updated: December 16, 2012 - 12:07am

NASA is offering high school junior girls an opportunity to jump-start their future by participating in the Women In STEM High School (WISH) Aerospace Scholars program for 2013. The program is free.

WISH students will participate in online forums focusing on science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) topics, and complete online activities to qualify for a six-day summer experience at NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas. There, they will work with mentors to design a mission to Mars, interact with NASA female role models, and mingle with scientists and engineers as they learn about careers in STEM.

Applications are due Thursday, Jan. 3. Applicants must be U.S. citizens, female high school juniors with a cumulative GPA of 3.25 or higher, and interested in STEM. They must have access to the Internet and email, be able to commit to the project for one year and participate in the Johnson summer program in 2013.

Questions may be directed to JSC-NHAS@mail.nasa.gov. To learn more about NASA’s Women In STEM High School Aerospace Scholars, visit wish.aerospacescholars.org For more information about NASA’s education programs, go online to nasa.gov/education.
