“High School Aerospace Scholars (HAS) is a unique NASA experience that begins with a 16-week online interactive course on NASA activities related to space exploration, Earth science, technology, mathematics, and aeronautics. Students complete design challenges including 3D drawings, science quizzes, discussion posts, technology writings, and monthly webinars with NASA scientists and engineers. The highest achieving students are invited to NASA for a six-day residential summer experience at NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas, where they work with NASA experts on designing a mission to Mars. Students are nominated by their state legislator and must be a Texas resident and U.S. citizen currently in their junior year of high school (rising seniors) with an interest and aptitude for mathematics, science, engineering or computer science”
May 13, 2020 – Update –
NASA invited Emmons to participate in NASA’s Texas High School Aerospace Scholars (HAS) virtual summer program. Typically, this is a 6-day summer camp at the Johnson Space Center, but this year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic precautions, it’s virtual. He’s a little disappointed about the “virtual part, yet super stoked about the invite and opportunity to participate.
I am so blessed to have two scholars for sons.
