Warren County High School

NASA's Science, Engineering, Mathematics and Aerospace Academy at Warren County High School is an innovative national project designed to reach K-12th-grade students that are traditionally underrepresented in careers involving science, technology, engineering and mathematics, or STEM.

Offered on Saturday mornings in three repeating eight-week sessions (with additional week-long courses available during the summer months), the NASA SEMAA Project provides area students and their families with a suite of one-of-a-kind STEM experiences.

The Project uses NASA-developed, STEM-focused, K-12 curriculum enhancement activities that feature a collection of hands-on, inquiry-based learning activities. Each activity is both age- and grade-appropriate and draws heavily upon today's research from each of NASA's four mission directorates (Aeronautics Research, Exploration Systems, Space Operations, and Science). The curriculum enhancement activities meet national math and science standards and are taught by certified K-12 classroom instructors. Students also tour NASA facilities and learn about STEM careers from NASA experts and local STEM professionals.

In addition to the hands-on classroom activities, participating middle and high school-aged SEMAA students conduct hands-on investigations inside the Aerospace Education Laboratory, or AEL, a state-of-the-art, electronically enhanced, computerized classroom that puts cutting-edge NASA technology at the fingertips of students. Working in pairs, students staff 10 unique research stations inside the AEL that have been carefully designed to model real-world challenges in aviation and reduced gravity research. Working collectively, these students will use actual aerospace hardware and software to gather the essential data necessary to plan and complete a simulated cross-country flight or a mission to the International Space Station.

The NASA SEMAA project at Warren County High School also features the Family Café, which is a unique family involvement component specifically designed for parents and other adult family members and caregivers. The Family Café is a special interactive forum that provides parents and caregivers with the information, resources, and support needed to become active partners in their children's education
