HAS 2021 Shareable 1.jpg

NASA High School Aerospace Scholars (HAS) is a unique program that encourages high school juniors from across Texas to explore the vast opportunities awaiting them in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields. Today’s workforce suffers from a shortage in these areas, but with your help we can work to improve the nation’s pipeline. HAS begins with an interactive, online learning experience and culminates in an all-expenses-paid visit to Johnson during the summer. During the week-long visit, student teams work with NASA scientists and engineers to compete in hands-on design challenges and design an Artemis themed mission to Moon and Mars. HAS is a great opportunity for juniors to explore the opportunities available to them, especially if they have an aptitude in STEM. School districts may also choose to allow students to receive a high school science elective credit towards graduation upon successful completion of the activity. Students who attend the onsite experience also receive information on scholarship and internship opportunities. Over 11,000 students across the state of Texas have participated in HAS thanks to the State of Texas and various community organizations who partner with NASA to support HAS. State senators and representatives from each district administer the selection process and ensure representation from around Texas. HAS provides lodging, meals, and transportation to and from Johnson, at no cost to the student.
