Washington Aerospace Scholars is a distance-learning and summer residency program for high school juniors that emphasizes science, technology, engineering and math, and encourages students to consider careers in these fields

The online curriculum will begin in December 2015 and continue until May 2016. It consists of ten lessons, designed by NASA and the University of Washington, and a final project. The online portion of the program is free, but students have the option to pay for five University of Washington credits. Based on their lesson scores, top performing students will be invited to participate in a six-day, Summer Residency at The Museum of Flight in June or July 2016. During their residency, students will design a human mission to Mars guided by aerospace professionals, tour engineering facilities, and compete in hands-on engineering challenges.

The WAS program is open to high school juniors throughout Washington. Applicants must be US Citizens and Washington State Residents. The student deadline for the 2015-16 cycle is November 6, 2015.

Washington math and science teachers are also invited to apply as Online Academic Evaluators from December to May and Summer Residency Facilitators for one six-day session in either June or July.
