NHSOY Mission

The Mission of MOSI’s National Hispanic Scientist of the Year (NHSOY) Award is to honor the achievements of both an early career and senior scientist with well-established and highly respected accomplishments in any of the STEAM disciplines, and to inspire disadvantage Hispanic-American and other students to pursue and excel in STEAM studies and careers. MOSI hosts the awardees for 2 – 3 days, which includes a day of meetings and motivating Hispanic and other middle school students participating in MOSI’s educational activities.

The NHSOY induction and award ceremonies showcase the achievements of the awardees and honor the Hispanic community while contributing to the betterment of society by inspiring future generations of STEAM practitioners.
