Sophomores -- Look!

The Virginia Space Coast Scholars (VSCS) is a program for sophomores focusing on the earth and airborne science, engineering, and technology integral to current missions at NASA Wallops Flight Facility and the Mid-Atlantic Regional Spaceport. This dynamic (and FREE) program, designed by the Virginia Space Grant Consortium (VSGC), inspires students who possess technical and/or scientific interests and are motivated to learn about the many different opportunities that NASA offers.

The VSCS program features two key elements: 1.) an on-line science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) learning experience featuring five modules; and 2.) a seven-day residential Summer Academy at NASA Wallops Flight Facility on Wallops Island, VA where selected scholars will learn first-hand from NASA professionals and their partners about the latest cutting edge technologies and missions.

Program Information:

  • FREE Program for 10th Grade Students
  • Online modules covering NASA aircraft, balloon, and rocket missions launched or managed at Wallops Flight Facility
  • Online course runs from December 2014 through March 2015
  • Highly successful students will be selected for a week long Summer Academy at NASA Wallops Flight Facility (Chincoteague, VA)
  • Application Deadline: November 2, 2014
  • http://vscs.spacegrant.org/ for application and more information

For more information, please contact Elizabeth Joyner, STEM Education Program Coordinator, at ejoyner@odu.edu.

Juniors -- Look!

For high school juniors, Virginia Aerospace Science and Technology Scholars (VASTS) is an interactive online learning course with a space mission design and human space flight theme, culminating in a one-week residential Summer Academy at NASA Langley Research Center in Hampton for those students who qualify. Offered at no cost to the student, VASTS consists of eight modules and a final project to be completed from December 2014 through May 2015 under the guidance of licensed master educators. Based on success in the online coursework, students may be selected to attend a Summer Academy where they interact with NASA scientists, engineers and technologists to design a human mission to Mars. Students who successfully participate in VASTS can earn 2 college credits for the online course and 2 additional credits for the Summer Academy.

The deadline for the application is November 2, 2014.

For more information on this program, please contact: Ian Cawthray VASTS Education Program Coordinator ian.m.cawthray@nasa.gov Or visit: vasts.spacegrant.org
