Museum of Science and History Announces NASA Program

CORPUS CHRISTI - The Corpus Christi Museum of Science and History is teaming with none other than NASA to offer High School students a chance to explore Mars.

The Mars Student Imaging Project is a cutting-edge space project which will pair local students with scientists. Together, they will explore parts of the red planet no one has ever seen before, as students engage in science research using data from a NASA spacecraft orbiting Mars. Participants will also analyze images and data, as they seek to make new discoveries.

The program will take place at the museum two Saturdays each month from 9 AM to Noon, beginning September 6th and continuing for four months. There will be both fall and spring semester options available. Students are required to commit to the weekends of the program, but there will be no outside work required.

Space is limited to 30 High School students.
