High School Aerospace Scholars

Representative Greg Bonnen, MD is pleased to announce the launch of the 2013-2014 High School Aerospace Scholars (HAS) project. HAS enables selected Texas high school juniors to explore new frontiers and become a part of NASA's plan for space exploration.  

Selected students will apply their math and science skills to complete eight web-based assignments during the school year to be competitively selected to travel to Johnson Space Center in Houston during the summer to put those skills to use.  At Johnson. they will design and propose a mission focused on deep space exploration alongside their peers as well as NASA scientists and engineers. 

Eligible students are required to meet the following criteria:

  • U.S. citizen
  • Texas resident
  • Currently a high school junior
  • Interest in science, math or engineering
  • Able to commit to a relationship with Johnson, including a one-week residential experience during the summer
  • Access to the Internet and e-mail (home, school or public library)

The state of Texas, in partnership with Johnson and the Texas educational community, developed HAS in 1999 to encourage students to pursue studies and careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.  More than 3400 students from across the state have participated.  Additional partners include the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, Rotary National Award for Space Achievement and University of Houston System.

High school juniors interested in applying for the 2013-2014 project should visit:
