Washington Aerospace Scholars (WAS) recently announced that the following students from the area are among the juniors from across the state of whose academic performance on the WAS Phase One curriculum qualified them for Phase Two – the WAS Summer Residency:

Tatum Dalgleish – Attends Mount Si High School and lives in Fall City.

WAS is designed to connect high school juniors in with educational and career opportunities in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics through independent learning, hands-on interaction, professional guidance, and site-based tours.

In December 2017, Dalgleish was among the 200 who began competing for a spot in one of the WAS Summer Residency sessions by completing ten NASA and University of Washington designed lessons- Phase One of the WAS program. Students were able to register to earn five UW credits based on successful completion of the curriculum.

Phase Two is a six-day experience that will be held at The Museum of Flight in Seattle during three sessions throughout June and July. In each session, four student teams cooperate to plan a human mission to Mars with support from professional engineers/ scientists, university students, and certificated educators. Additionally, participants receive briefings from aerospace professionals, tour engineering facilities, and compete in hands-on engineering challenges.
