High school teachers seeking an authentic, inquiry-based research opportunity for their students during the 2022–2023 school year are invited to apply for the Exploration of the Moon and Asteroids by Secondary Students (ExMASS) program. ExMASS is an academic year-long research program that envelops teams of students, paired with a planetary scientist, in the process of science. At the end of the year, teams compete for a chance to present their research during the annual NASA Exploration Science Forum.

ExMASS program goals:
* Provide an opportunity for secondary students to engage in multiple practices of science,
* foster positive student attitudes towards science, and
* enhance student lunar and asteroid science content knowledge.

Participation in the ExMASS program is free. Interested teachers should complete the online application no later than 5:00pm Central Time, May 1, 2022. Selected teachers will be notified no later than May 16, 2022.

Scientists interested in advising a team of students should contact Andy Shaner.
