Banks selected as Aerospace Scholar
The Washington Aerospace Scholars program has selected Joshua Banks from Washougal High School as a participant in one of the four WAS Summer Residency sessions held in June and July at the Museum of Flight in Seattle.
W.A.S. is a competitive educational program for high school juniors from across Washington State.
These scholars are among the 160 students who qualified for the program from 297 students who applied in November.
To qualify for the residency program, they spent five months studying a NASA-designed, distance-learning curriculum via the Internet and have been selected to attend one of the four residencies hosted at The Museum of Flight this summer based on their academic performance on the distance-learning lessons.
