Virtual Trips to Extreme Environments

Boys & Girls Club Application Form



Boys & Girls Clubs (BGCs) with students ages 10 – 15 can apply here to participate in the VIRTEX program. Staff at the BGCs will facilitate a variety of activities with students to prepare them for interactions with their NASA Mentors.

Through dialogue before, during, and after a virtual fieldtrip with NASA Mentors, students will develop an increased understanding of the Mentors’ backgrounds, motivations to do research, problem-solving skills, and career pathways, while learning more about unique NASA research in extreme environments.

If you have any questions about the VIRTEX program, please contact us.

Scientists who have received NASA funding can sign up to be a mentor using this form.
