Opportunity is only available to current HUNCH students and educators.
The High Schools United with NASA to Create Hardware, HUNCH, is an innovative school-based program that partners NASA with high schools and middle schools in states across the nation. The HUNCH project provides work experiences to inspire high school career technology and engineering academy students to pursue careers in science and engineering fields.
The HUNCH project has partnered with NASA's Reduced Gravity Education Flight Program (RGEFP) to create a unique flight week opportunity for students and educators. Selected teams design, fabricate, fly and evaluate reduced gravity experiments over a course of four to six months. These selected teams will work with NASA mentors to carry out scientific research, hands-on investigational design and test operations.
