Texas high school students can help NASA accomplish space exploration


High school juniors are being given the opportunity to become part of NASA.

State Rep. Dan Flynn announced last week the launch of the 2016-17 High School Aerospace Scholars program. The program will select a group of juniors from all over the state to travel to Johnson Space Center in Houston next summer, where they will become part of NASA’s plan for space exploration. The students will utilize math and science skills during the school year to complete online assignments geared toward developing the skills needed to find options for sending humans to the moon, Mars and beyond.
