Giljohann selected for NASA intership

Alissa Giljohann of Menomonie High School  will travel to NASA’s Johnson Space Center (JSC) in Houston, Texas, this summer to participate in a one-week summer internship.

Giljohann has been selected as one of 90 high school juniors from across the United States to be part of Women in STEM High School Aerospace Scholars (WISH). They have been working to complete 8 Web-based assignments during the school year. They will apply what they have learned during the year, which will challenge them to work as part of a team to design a radiation shield and rover to traverse on the surface of Mars.

The weeklong experience at JSC includes a tour of JSC facilities and briefings by noted NASA employees. These students and teammates will conclude their experience by presenting their proposal at a brunch to their parents, members of the Rotary NASA, and JSC senior management.

Women in STEM High School Aerospace Scholars is in its third year. With this program, NASA continues the Agency’s tradition of investing in the nation’s educational programs. It is directly tied to the Agency's major education goal of attracting and retaining students in STEM disciplines critical to NASA’s future missions, which include missions to Mars and beyond.
