Tuesday, July 2, 2013
A Washougal High School junior will have the opportunity to attend a six-day summer residency program at the Museum of Flight in Seattle.
Brian Choi is one of just 160 students from across the state to earn a spot in the Washington Aerospace Scholars (WAS) Summer Residency Program from July 14-19.
Choi's high academic performance on the WAS Phase One curriculum, an online course with quizzes, research papers and assignments, qualified him for the program.
The residency will be held at The Museum of Flight. Choi will join a team of four students to work cooperatively to plan a human mission to Mars with support from professional engineers, scientists, university students, and educators.
