Mission Statement

Washington Aerospace Scholars aims to increase the number of students seeking degrees and careers in STEM fields by combining academic study with inquiry and project-based learning.

Description

Washington Aerospace Scholars (WAS) is an educational program for high school juniors from across Washington State. Thanks to the Washington Aerospace Scholars Foundation, the entire program is offered at no cost to participants. The WAS program emphasizes science, technology, engineering and math, and encourages students to consider careers in these fields. The program is divided into two components - the online curriculum and the summer residency. Phase One, distance learning using a NASA-designed, online curriculum, consists of ten lessons and a final project. To be considered for Phase Two, the summer residency, students are expected to meet deadlines and show mastery of the Phase One curriculum. The Museum of Flight hosts each weeklong summer residency experience during which students are guided by professional engineers and educators as they design a human mission to Mars. Summer residency participants are also visited by guest speakers, tour engineering facilities, and compete in hands-on engineering challenges.
