I am writing to thank Senator ​Daines for his support of the NASA High School Students United with NASA to Create Hardware (HUNCH) program.  This 14-year-old program has been operational in Montana since 2005. Students in Laurel and Billings have built flight hardware, electronic training equipment, and prototypes to help astronauts live and work on the International Space Station.
The HUNCH program’s mission is to inspire students through project-based learning. Students learn real-world skills as they fabricate valued products for NASA. The program is an investment in our future workforce, ensuring America’s global leadership in science and technology.
As the only chemical engineer in Congress, Sen. Daines clearly appreciates the significance of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics education for our students in Montana as well as across the nation. Senator Daines incorporated the following statement within the NASA reauthorization act which was recently passed by the U.S. Senate.
“It is the sense of Congress that—in order to grow and diversify the nation’s engineering workforce, it is vital for the Administration to bolster programs, such as High Schools United with NASA to Create Hardware program, that conduct outreach activities to underserved rural communities, vocational schools, tribal colleges and universities and encourage new participation in the STEM workforce,” the statement said.
Thank you Senator Daines for realizing the importance of all students to reach their full potential as they launch their careers.
