NASA intends to continue an information collection associated with the Women in STEM Aerospace Scholars (WISH) and NASA High School Aerospace Scholars (NHAS) projects. These projects are aligned with NASA's Strategic Goal 6, which is to share NASA with the public, educators, and students to provide opportunities to participate in our mission, foster innovation and contribute to a strong National economy. The Women in STEM High School Aerospace Scholars (WISH) project was piloted in FY2011 and expanded to include NASA High School Aerospace Scholars (NHAS) in FY2012. The NHAS/WISH will continue to provide opportunities for high school juniors to participate in STEM education engagement activities that use NASA unique assets and content. NHAS/WISH provides an interactive, online learning experience for high school juniors across the United States. Students apply voluntarily to be considered for this opportunity. This information collection consists of an online application form for completion by high school student applicants. The application process is intended to identify interested, qualified applicants for participation in a multiple-month, on-line curriculum delivery and, for those who successfully complete the on-line curriculum, in a one-week experience at a specific NASA site.
