Aviation High School Congratulates Sharonee Vaca and Mindy Zhu on Their Acceptance into NASA's Women in STEM High School Aerospace Scholars Program (WISH)!
About the Program:
Female high school juniors are immersed in learning as they become members of the interactive online community WISH, facilitated by NASA. As part of their interactive learning experience, students complete lessons covering past, current and future space exploration. The lessons include an essay, math problem and quiz. They will be graded by certified teachers. To enhance their studies, students will be able to chat with NASA subject matter experts. After completing the lessons, each student will submit a final project based on a leading female STEM professional who is developing cutting-edge technology or performing new research.
As part of the experience, students will compete to attend the summer workshop at NASA's Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas, where they will work alongside female NASA engineers and interns to design a mission to Mars. Approximately 40 WISH students will work in collaborative teams doing hands-on activities and presenting their projects to NASA personnel and community leaders.

2012 Senior Project: Fully Overhauled and Restored Cessna 150K
During the 2011-2012 school year, Aviation High School seniors worked on a year long project to overhaul, repair and refurbish a 1969 Cessna 150K that was sitting in an airfield in upstate New York for over eight years. Led by Aviation Maintenance senior teachers, the students in the hangar set to work stripping the decades old paint, repairing the aircraft, and restoring it to its original beauty, while 5th Year Honors students overhauled the engine at Aviation High School's JFK Annex. The students worked diligently all throughout the year to restore the aircraft and the hard work paid off! By June 2012 the Cessna 150K was running smoothly and shining bright! All the students who worked on the plane were recognized by Principal Charalambous and JetBlue CEO Dave Barger during the 2012 Graduation ceremony. This project was a great testament to the hard work, perseverance, and dedication to the field of aviation that all Aviation High School students are known for. Take a look at the project photo album to see the progress from beginning to end!
