In case anyone also serves teens, this opportunity may be of interest to female high school juniors:
WISH, the Women in STEM High School Aerospace Scholars project, is now accepting applications from female high school juniors from across the country. Selected participants will complete online activities and participate in online forums focusing on science, technology, engineering and mathematic (STEM) topics to be eligible for the summer experience at the Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas. During the summer experience, they will chart a course for Mars, engage with NASA female role models, interact with scientists and engineers and learn about careers in STEM. The deadline for applications is January 3, 2013. Visit http://wish.aerospacescholars.org for more details.
Learn more about WISH, including tips on how to create a successful application, by attending one of the online information sessions listed below. The sessions are open to everybody, but you must email JSC-NHAS@mail.nasa.gov for log-in instructions.
