Fly High Class of 2002:

Unfortunately, due to budget reductions, we will not have a high school component of the student flight program anytime in the near future. While we would love to fly more and more student programs, we do have to be realistic about the budget and its very real constraints. In the future we might resurrect the high school component, but we do not see that happening anytime in the near term. Teachers and TEA Regional representatives who have questions may contact:

Schools, teachers and students who are interested in other high school and middle school opportunities which NASA has to offer, are welcome to check out the following links. In addition, teachers are welcome to contact a nearby college or university team who has or is planning to participate in the NASA Reduced Gravity Student Flight Opportunities Program. University teams are encouraged to give outreach presentations to local high schools or invite high school students to participate on their team.
