NASA Summer Program:


The High School Aerospace Scholars application is now open at: http://has.aerospacescholars.org.
High School Aerospace Scholars (HAS) is a NASA unique opportunity for juniors who are interested in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) at no cost to participants.
Selected students will participate in an interactive, online course during the school year that culminates in an all-expense-paid trip to NASA’s Johnson Space Center in the summer. During the online course, students will investigate space exploration challenges by creating technical drawings, solving math problems, and participating in discussion forums with NASA engineers and scientists. Texas certified teachers guide students through the online curriculum and grade their work. After a competitive review of online material completed and submitted, selected students are invited to Johnson Space Center. Throughout this six day trip, participants will work with NASA mentors to complete engineering design challenges and plan a mission to Mars. Students will be briefed on the past, present, and future of space exploration by NASA engineers, scientists, and special guests while touring NASA’s facilities.
For more information and application deadlines, please visit the HAS website at: http://has.aerospacescholars.org.

Banson NYC Fashion Week Adventure
Please let your students know!


We are excited to offer a NYC Fashion Week Adventure for your students in February 2018.  The program is designed for high school and college students to either come on their own, with a friend or with a relative (parents, aunts and grandmothers are welcome!).  The five-day experience will allow participants to see what NYC Fashion week is all about by assisting with fashion shows during this exciting time.  The students will stay at a deluxe hotel in midtown Manhattan.  Each morning the group will be picked up at the hotel by a Banson NYC representative. From there we will depart for our activities of the day.  The adventure will be busy with visits, food tours, seminars and shopping trips but will leave a bit of free time for participants to explore on their own.  We accept applications on a first come, first served basis with a maximum of 20 participants.  Click here to be directed to our website.
