VASTS is a free competitive program that allows high school juniors and seniors to take an online NASA-developed course. Students learn about a broad range of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) skills. Based on course performance, scholars may be selected to participate in an all-expense paid seven-day residential Summer Academy at NASA Langley Research Center.

Scholars can receive two college credits for successful completion of online coursework and two additional credits for the Summer Academy. The course is offered for free online from December through May and consists of seven lessons and a final project that allows scholars to build their knowledge of NASA, space exploration and key STEM skills.

Scholars selected for the Summer Academy will spend seven days with STEM mentors and master educators at NASA Langley Research Center in Hampton. Scholars will work in project teams to design a human mission to Mars and will be immersed in hands-on experiential STEM activities.

ELIGIBILITY:  High School junior or senior • Virginia resident • U.S. citizen • Minimum GPA of 2.7 • Have access to the internet
