(Apply by July 6)
The Center for Lunar Science and Exploration at the Lunar and Planetary Institute and NASA’s Johnson Space Center is looking for teams of highly motivated and dedicated high school students (and their teachers) to participate in a two-semester lunar research program for the 2012-2013 academic year. Under the mentorship of a lunar scientist, students work alongside their teachers as they undertake a national standards-based research project that engages them in the process of science, and supports the science goals of the NASA Lunar Science Institute (NLSI). At the end of the program, students present their research results to a panel of lunar scientists, competing with other teams for a chance to present their work at the NLSI Forum held in July 2013.
