LEAGUE CITY – Jordan Mabry, a Clear Brook High School student, has been invited to NASA’s Johnson Space Center (JSC) to participate in a one-week summer internship beginning June 11.

Nominated by State Representative Larry Taylor, District 24, he has been selected as one of 314 high school juniors from across Texas to be part of High School Aerospace Scholars (HAS). Mabry has been working to complete 10 web-based assignments during the school year. He will apply what he has learned during the year, which will challenge Mabry to work as part of a team to design a mission to Mars.

The weeklong experience at JSC includes a tour of the JSC facilities and briefings by noted NASA employees, including astronauts. Mabry and teammates will conclude their experiences by presenting their proposal at a luncheon to their parents, members of the Texas Legislature, Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, Rotary NASA and JSC senior management.

The State of Texas, in partnership with JSC and the Texas educational community, developed HAS in 1999 to encourage more students to pursue studies and careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). More than 1,2000 students from across Texas have participated in the program since its inception.

With this program, NASA continues the Agency’s tradition of investing in the nation’s educational programs. It is directly tied to the Agency’s major education goals of attracting and retaining students in STEM disciplines critical to NASA’s future missions, which include missions returning to the moon, on to Mars and beyond.
