Parents: Do you know any 11th grade girls?

Women in STEM High School Aerospace Scholars by Roberta Johnson

NASA wants your female students to become the engineers, scientists, researchers and innovators of tomorrow.The WISH (Women in STEM High School Aerospace Scholars) project  offers a one-of-a-kind experience for female high school students to  jump start their future and give them the chance to explore the  possibilities of a Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) related  major or career and is now accepting applications for an excellent  program for high school juniors.

Female high school juniors selected to participate in WISH are  immersed in learning as they become members of the interactive online  community WISH, facilitated by NASA. As part of their interactive  learning experience, students complete lessons covering past, current and future space exploration. The lessons include an  essay, math problem and quiz. They will be graded by certified teachers. To enhance their studies, students will be able to chat with NASA  subject matter experts. After completing the lessons, each student will submit a final project based on a leading female STEM professional who is developing cutting-edge technology or performing  new research.

As part of the experience, students will compete to attend the summer workshop atNASA’s Johnson Space Center  in Houston, Texas, where they will work alongside female NASA engineers  and interns to design a mission to Mars. Approximately 40 WISH students  will work in collaborative teams doing hands-on activities and presenting their projects to NASA  personnel and community leaders.

NASA is now accepting online applications through January 3, 2012. For more information, visitWISH Aerospace Scholars to apply.
