Project Moonshot – Calling HS Juniors

​Texas High School Aerospace Scholars (HAS), as sponsored through HISD partner NASA, offers a one-of-a kind experience for High school juniors to explore the possibilities of a STEM related major or career.  Student participants will potentially earn one full science credit, participate in a five-day summer experience, and mentoring by NASA scientists and engineers.

NASA wants today’s students, the Artemis Generation, to become the engineers, scientists, researchers, and innovators of tomorrow. Texas High School Aerospace Scholars offers a one-of-a-kind experience for Texas high school students to explore the possibilities of a STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) related major or career. The adventure starts in the fall with an online course where students explore NASA content. Students with a 70 percent or greater average from the online course have an opportunity to participate in a five-day gamified summer experience - Moonshot. During Moonshot, students receive mentoring from NASA scientists and engineers, and work in teams to plan an Artemis-themed mission to the Moon and Mars.

Students who complete Moonshot may receive 1 science credit.
