Opportunity for Juniors to attend US Service Academy

Dear Education Leader:

U.S. Senator Chris Van Hollen would like to share information on an exciting opportunity that may be of interest to your students.

Juniors (students in the Class of 2023) who have an interest in learning about opportunities to attend a U.S. Service Academy for college are encouraged to apply to participate in a summer program. Each Academy’s summer program provides a week-long immersion into the academic, military, and social life of that Academy.  The Academies are ranked among the top undergraduate public universities in the country. The U.S. Naval Academy also offers a Summer STEM Program for rising 9th-11th graders. (Please see below.) 

Participation in a summer program is considered a student’s first step in navigating their future to becoming one of our nation’s next generation of leaders. Summer programs introduce one to life at an Academy, where they will experience first-class academic, athletic, and professional training at one of the most prestigious academic institutions in the country

Summer program applications are now being accepted for the U.S. Military Academy (Summer Leaders Experience, West Point, NY), U.S. Naval Academy (Summer Seminar, Annapolis, MD), and U.S. Coast Guard Academy (AIM Summer Program, New London, CT).

2019 Two Important Space Missions

I am always fascinated and intrigued by space exploration. It will super cool to take a time machine or teleportation to explore a new world other than the earth such as in Star Trek.

  1. US New Horizon reaches new far https://www.nytimes.com/2019/01/03/science/ultima-thule-pictures-new-horizons.html

Then I read BBC’s report on this, New York Times did not keep this science news away from political maneuver. It spread the wrong info to fit into its narrative. The People’s Daily has a front coverage on it. The following is from BBC report which is more objective.

3. China Moon mission lands Chang’e-4 spacecraft on far side
