• 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 are able to learn about different STEM related fields of study they might want to pursue in college.  Following a series of online lessons, 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 being mentored and receiving guidance from NASA scientists and engineers. Both the online and onsite portions are free to participants. 

    Applications are available for students beginning September 10, 2019 through October 23, 2019.

    How can you help?

    • Please encourage students at your school to visit our website at:  www.nasa.gov/has 

    • Get the word out to students on the morning announcements, in parent newsletters, in the school newspaper, and on your school’s social media channels using the hashtag #nasahas!

    • Spread the word to math, science, robotics, and physics teachers to recommend it to their students.

     Please find a brochure and letter with more information attached. If you have any questions, please contact us at jsc-has@mail.nasa.gov.
