Two Aviation High Students earn spot in Summer Aerospace Program

Two students from Des Moines’ Aviation High School will take part in the Washington Aerospace Scholars (WAS) Summer Residency program, the Highline School District announced Monday (June 3).

Aviation students Abigail Jarve and Mahekdeep Singh are among 160 talented juniors from across the state who will participate in the free science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education program.

Jarve and Singh competed against 285 students for a spot in the WAS Summer Residency program. They completed ten bi-weekly lessons developed by NASA and the University of Washington, and presented a final project.

Through the Summer Residency program, students will spend six days at The Museum of Flight, working in teams to plan a human mission to Mars. They will be mentored by professional engineers and scientists, university students, and certified educators.

In addition, students will attend lectors led by aerospace professionals, tour engineering facilities, and gain hands-on experience working with model rocketry, robotics, and landing devices.
