NASA is looking for the next generation of scientists, engineers and innovators. To jump-start the future of potential explorers, Women@NASA has created a mentoring project that offers a one-of-a-kind experience for middle school students. Participants will explore the possibilities of a career in the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics. The project will feature one-on-one mentoring from NASA employees. Participants will complete online lessons with their mentors while virtually connected through Skype or Google Chat.

Applicants must be U.S. citizens in grades 5-8 or the home-school equivalent. The mentoring project will take place over a five-week period during the summer.  Applications are due June 28, 2015. For more information and to register online, visit http://women.nasa.gov/nasagirls/.
