The weeklong experience at JSC includes a tour of JSC facilities and briefings by noted NASA employees including astronauts. These students and teammates will conclude their experience by presenting their proposal at a luncheon to their parents, members of the Texas Legislature, Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, Rotary NASA, and JSC senior management.
The State of Texas, in partnership with JSC and the Texas educational community, developed HAS in 1999 to encourage more students to pursue studies and careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). More than 1500 students from across Texas have participated in the program since its inception.
