NASA Community College Aerospace Scholars (NCAS) is a fully funded, STEM-related program that is sure to get educators' attention. The opportunity begins with a five-week online learning experience that uses the past and present of Mars missions to elucidate math, science, and engineering quandaries. Participating students then go on-site for an all-expenses paid workshop at a NASA center. Even for students who don't apply to the highly competitive program, however, there are some wonderful resources on the site. The Features section, for instance, hosts portraits of eight student-scholars who completed the program, telling the stories of how they came to the program, and what they did afterward. In addition, under the About NASA and JSC tab, readers can find links to NASA centers around the country, including the famed Lyndon B. Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas and the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasedena, California.
