Unique Program & Traditions

Major aspects of the mentorship experience include preparation of a formal written proposal for their project, oral presentation of proposal and status report at mid-year to GSST faculty and evaluators, final research document, and presentation of final results to a panel of professionals in appropriate fields at the GSST Spring Research Symposium. In addition, many students present their findings at local, regional, and national science competitions and symposia. Exceptional work has been published in professional journals.

NASA Langley Research Center and the Governor's School for Science and Technology have signed a space act agreement providing gifted students the opportunity for hands-on experience and guidance in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) with the goal of inspiring future explorers, scientists and engineers. The partnership will allow next generation students the opportunity to interact with and be mentored by NASA Langley researchers on STEM projects to expand education and knowledge through mentored projects and activities. In support of NASA Langley's STEM education mission, researchers will assist students with college-level work and provide information about NASA's vision, mission, programs and projects.
