NASA Online Summer Mentoring Program Aims to Teach Young Girls About STEM
Better than space camp.
For the third consecutive year, NASA’s Girls and Boys program is looking to connect middle schoolers with NASA employees for a 5-week online summer program. The class is open to students grades 5 through 8, but unfortunately you must be a U.S. citizen to attend.
According to Geek Mom, each week of the course will focus on a different pillar of STEM (Science, Tech, Engineering, and Math) and examine real-life applications for each topic. Students will each be assigned a NASA mentor that they will interact with via Google Hangout or Skype.
The deadline to apply is this Monday, June 28th; space is limited and filled randomly by lottery from the applicant pool.
