Attention college freshmen and sophomore STEM majors!
NASA is once again offering its Launching 2 Learn program this summer. This opportunity is available for rising college freshmen and sophomores majoring in a STEM degree. There are 15 slots available for students to learn how to build and launch level 1 and level 2 high powered rockets, and learn all the math and science involved. Students will be given the opportunity to earn their National Association of Rocketry Level 1 certificate. For the level 2 launch, student teams will perform hand calculations and simulations, then compare these estimations with the results from the level 2 flight, and present it to NASA engineers and personnel. The purpose is to give students early encouragement to stay enrolled in a STEM degree program by completing relevant and exciting hands-on projects. Students will be paid a stipend of $2400 to participate in this program. Some travel funds are available for students that live more than 50 miles from KSC. The program will be held at KSC July 11 – Aug 5. Students must be U.S. Citizens to participate. Applications are due June 20, 2016, and can be filled out through the link below:
