Launching 2 Learn Opportunity

NASA is pleased to offer the 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 Kennedy Space Center.  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.  Please note that this is a short turn around.  Please see link below:
