Our six (6) candidates for the 2017 SFIC Summer Advanced Space Academy Program in Huntsville were announced on Thursday, May 4, 2017 at our annual reception for current and past SFIC Space Camp scholarship recipients.
Thanks are in order for Mr. & Mrs. Mark and Cathy Walchak. Their insight and generosity created, and continues to support, this program to promote the love of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) through a week long program centered on …aeronautical science and STEM related challenges at the U.S. Space and Rocket Center in Huntsville, Al.
Each year Sophomores and juniors attending a Catholic high school throughout the Newark Archdiocese compete by submitting an application, current report cards, and a recommendation from their science teachers. They must also show an avid interest in science, technology, engineering and math and submit an essay as part of the process. A committee reviews all of the applications and chooses six students based on all of the above.
Congratulations to the following students:
