Women in STEM High School Aerospace Scholars Flier — Grades 9-11

WISH wants female high school juniors to participate in a pilot project. Beginning with an online collaboration in fall 2010, selected applicants will compete to participate in a summer 2011 workshop at NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston. There they will work alongside female NASA engineers and interns and collaborate in hands-on activities in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. The WISH Flier explains how to apply.

Human Exploration Project Series — Grades K-12

This series of curricular units focus on themes that NASA engineers and scientists — as well as future generations of explorers — must consider when planning future human explorations into space. This includes such themes as Energy and Power, Transportation and Lunar Plant Growth Chambers (the STS-118 Design Challenges).
