The Center for Lunar Science and Exploration (CLSE) at the Lunar and Planetary Institute and NASA’s Johnson Space Center is looking for 10 teams of highly motivated high school students and their teachers to participate in a national standards-based, lunar/asteroid research program for the 2016-2017 academic year. CLSE is one of nine members of the NASA Solar System Exploration Research Virtual Institute (SSERVI).

The Exploration of the Moon and Asteroids by Secondary Students (ExMASS) program is an academic year-long, national standards-based lunar/asteroid research program that envelops students in the process of science. Supervised by their teachers and advised by a scientist, teams undertake student-led, open-inquiry research projects. At the end of the year, four teams compete for a chance to present their research at the NASA Exploration Science Forum held at the NASA Ames Research Center in July 2017.

Participation in the ExMASS program is free. Interested teachers should complete the online application at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/2016_exmass_app. Applications are due May 2, 2016. Selected teachers will be notified no later than May 16, 2016.

For more information, and to apply for the ExMASS program, visit http://www.lpi.usra.edu/exploration/education/hsResearch/. For questions, please visit the ExMASS FAQ page or contact Andy Shaner.
