Virginia Aerospace Science and Technology Scholars (VASTS) is a NASA-based program for 11th grade students and STEM teachers who are interested in aerospace-related science, technology, engineering and/or math (STEM). 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 2015 through May 2016 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. For program information and application, visit http://vasts.spacegrant.org. The deadline for student applications is November 8, 2015.
