Texas High School Aerospace Scholars is an authentic STEM learning experience for Texas high school juniors to engage with NASA’s missions and become the next generation of explorers. HAS is a year-long commitment for Texas high school juniors which starts in the fall with a four-month online learning experience related to space exploration, Earth science, technology, and aeronautics. Highest achieving students receive an invitation to a five-day gamified virtual summer experience (Moonshot) mentored by NASA scientists and engineers. During the virtual summer experience, students work in teams to plan an Artemis-themed mission to the Moon and Mars. Top teams from the virtual summer experience are invited to attend a two-day residential experience at NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston.
