Thank you for supporting HAS last year! We wanted to provide you information for this year’s HAS!

NASA’s High School Aerospace Scholars (HAS) applications are now open! HAS is an authentic learning experience for Texas high school juniors to engage with NASA’s mission to become the next generation of explorers.  Students learn about different STEM related fields of study they might want to pursue in college.  Following a series of online lessons, highest achieving students attend an all-expenses-paid, week-long visit to the NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston during the summer. Selected participants plan a team based Artemis themed mission to Moon and Mars with the guidance of NASA scientists and engineers. Both the online and onsite portions are free to participants.

Applications are available for students beginning September 8, 2020 through October 21, 2020.

How can you help?
