SystemsGo Aeroscience program for high schools
Endorsed by NASA
Certified by The Space Foundation
Our SystemsGo Aeroscience science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) curriculum uses inquisitive learning based on a problem- and project-based model to invoke and stimulate skills in design, development, testing, analysis, and innovation.
Students will experience hands-on research through design and development projects within the engineering industries. This approach cultivates valuable life skills such as critical thinking, problem solving, testing and analysis, documentation and reporting, project management, teamwork and communication.
SystemsGo is endorsed by NASA and certified by The Space Foundation.
It is a two-year program developed for high school juniors and seniors. First-year students design and develop remotely operated vehicles and unmanned aerial vehicles for research or industrial applications. Second-year students develop sounding rockets capable of lofting 35 pound -research payloads to 100,000 feet for collaborative research purposes with associated universities. Both years can/will be credited as a lab-based science credit or an elective science credit for graduation requirement credits within TEA's engineering pathway.
It is proven that our applied philosophies of education are successful in supporting tomorrow's workforce needs. SystemsGo has been developed to encourage all students to pursue engineering careers in the American workforce. In the past ten years, 80% of students have pursued engineering degrees.
The goal of the program is to promote engineering studies and research, develop work force skills, and encourage students to enter academic and career paths in STEM fields that lead to careers in the engineering industries.
Our Mission Statement:
To enhance education for better workforce development and to ignite tomorrow's innovators.
Fredericksburg High School of Fredericksburg, Texas is the first high school to design and develop rockets exceeding Mach 2.
First high school to launch rockets at a Federal Missile Range with national records for largest, fastest and highest vehicle designed and developed by high school students.
Eighty percent (80%) of the aeroscience students have continued on to study engineering in college. Now many of them have begun careers at major space related companies such as NASA, United Space Alliance, and Space Exploration
