Meet Tapaswini! She's garnered TWO nods from NASA for her astronaut habitation designs! She knows five programming languages and is passionate about physics and engineering! She is currently working on a deep-space hibernation chamber design, oh, and did we mention that she's 17?!?

Tapaswini is our first Advanced Individual Sponsorship for Exemplary Students, AISES, recipient and we couldn't be more honored to play a part in her journey!
