Student Challenges

NASA's Perseverance rover landed on Mars in February. With the landing came the Mission to Mars Student Challenge, a seven-week science and engineering challenge designed to get students creating their own mission to the Red Planet. Now that the rover is exploring Mars, it's a great time to begin the challenge with students! Get students exploring even more with the TechRise and Artemis student challenges.

With all these opportunities to do hands-on STEM, students will want to know how it all translates into a career at NASA. With these resources, students can learn about the kinds of careers at NASA and read about what interns are working on and how to become one.
