NASA STEM Program

Want to be an astronaut? Want to design rockets? How about robotics?

The NASA STEM Program is the premier STEM learning program. Students will learn from professional scientists, engineers, and astronauts and then apply their skills in NASA space exploration missions. The missions require a combination of mathematical understanding, teamwork, robotics, coding, and physics. As the students improve their problem-solving skills, the missions progressively become more challenging each day.

The students work in teams alongside scientists, engineers, and others at the NASA Space Center in Houston, Texas. They'll even have lectures from astronauts, Ph.D.’s, astrophysicists and others doing very cool things in the space world, including a guest speaker from Space X to discuss private space travel.

Each student that successfully completes the NASA STEM Program will receive a certificate of completion from NASA. Take the first step to becoming an astronaut, space engineer, or astrophysicist! Join the NASA STEM Program today!
