Veterans Memorial High School has two students, Alexis Aranda and Stefan Jabs, that have been accepted for the NASA High School Aerospace Scholars program. This program offers students a one-of-a-kind learning experience by exploring a Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) related major or career.

The High School Aerospace Scholars (HAS) 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.
