MHS T-STEM Academy students selected for NASA aerospace program

            Mission, Texas- Two Mission High School (MHS) T-STEM Academy students have been accepted into the NASA High School Aerospace Scholars program. This competitive, NASA sponsored program offers the students a one-of-a-kind experience to help them explore the possibilities of a Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) related major or career. Linda Chapman and Brianna Sosa have already started their journey that ends during the summer of 2018.

            The High School Aerospace Scholars is an interactive, online learning experience that culminates in an all-expenses-paid, week-long visit to NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston during the summer. Their online coursework will include design challenges that include 3D drawings, Science and Math quizzes, discussion posts, technology writings, virtual chats with NASA engineers and scientists.

            The six-day summer experience will include: team projects and briefings directed by NASA engineers and scientists, hands-on design challenge and engineering activities to plan a mission to Mars, as well as tours of NASA facilities.
