When HISD seniors Victor Rodríguez and Joshua Bryant graduate from high school this spring, they will immediately go to work at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration’s (NASA) Johnson Space Center in the Robotics Division, working on actual NASA projects.

Rodríguez, a participant in Reagan High School’s engineering program, and Bryant, from the Booker T. Washington High School Engineering Professions Magnet school, were selected because of their extensive experience in robotics. Both got their start early in robotics, and both have been recognized for their exemplary performance in various robotics competitions.

The students will also receive $4,000 scholarships for college, and they will work at NASA every summer.
