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.
