Rep. Ashby Announces Launch of High School Aerospace Scholars Project


Representative Ashby is pleased to announce the launch of the 2015-2016 High School Aerospace Scholars (HAS) project. HAS enables selected high school juniors to explore new frontiers and become a part of NASA’s plan for space exploration.

Selected students will apply their math and science skills to complete web-based assignments during the school year, and those who score high enough will travel to the Johnson Space Center in Houston during the summer to put those skills to use. With the guidance of NASA scientists and engineers, they will design a mission to Mars and take part in hands-on engineering challenges.

“This is a phenomenal program, and one which I am proud that the state of Texas supports,” said Rep. Ashby. “I hope a number of students from House District 57 will take part in this unique opportunity to get invaluable hands-on experience in science and engineering.”

High school juniors who wish to apply should visit to view requirements and submit their application. The application deadline is Tuesday, November 3, 2015.
If students need help navigating the application process, they may call Rep. Ashby’s office at (512) 463-0508.
