Virginia Space Coast Scholars, 2017

Online Course

The Virginia Space Coast Scholars (VSCS) program is a dynamic, informal online learning experience for high school sophomores. With a focus on scientific exploration, students will be introduced to the science, engineering, and technology concepts that are integral to earth and space-based missions launched or conducted from Virginia’s Space Coast on the Eastern Shore. Students who successfully complete the online course may be invited to attend a seven day, residential summer academy at Wallops Flight Facility.


Program Goals:

● Increase the number of students that pipeline into VASTS, VESSS and other STEM programs and activities

● Positively affect the choice of classes for high school and college coursework for the future

● Apply skills learned in VSCS to high school coursework
