I am interested in attending the NASA Learning Experience because I would like the to learn more about the NASA program as well as getting more exposure in the science field.  I feel that this trip will help build my academic skills in both science and math.  This trip would benefit me academically and personally.

As a student at RF Kennedy Elem., I have maintained my grades and have scored in the proficient and Advanced Bands on the standardized state test since 2nd grade.  I have participated in many contests and extra-curricular activities.  I have been a contestant in our District Oraltorical Contest (2 years), spelling bee, math bee, science fair (3 years), choir, student council (2 years), basketball and soccer (2 years).  I have been identified into the GATE (Gifted and Talented Education) program, and I have received many honors and awards between K-5th grades.  I am inspired to go further with my education and pursue a college degree and beyond.  My future goal is to become a scientist although I do have a strong interest in music and arts too.

I feel I should be selected because I’m hard working, dedicated, and motivated.  I love science and to go on this field trip would be like the ultimate science experience ever.  I hope you consider my application and look forward to this summer experience.
