The LPI-JSC Center for Lunar Science and Exploration (CLSE) is looking for volunteers to advise a team of high school students participating in our 2014-2015 Exploration of the Moon and Asteroids by Secondary Students (ExMASS) program. ExMASS is part of CLSE’s E/PO efforts with the NASA Solar System Exploration Research Virtual Institute (SSERVI). Working alongside their teachers and an advisor, students undertake authentic, open-inquiry research projects that engage them in the process of science and support the science goals of SSERVI. Advisor time commitment varies; in the past, advisors reported spending 1-3 hours a week communicating with their team.

If you are interested in being an advisor, or would like more information, please email Andy Shaner or call him at 281-486-2163 by September 12, 2014. Advisors will be placed with teams by September 30th. The 2014-2015 program begins September 2nd and concludes in April 2015.
