Check out this FREE opportunity to interact with other students from
Virginia who are interested in the excitement of Science, Technology,
Engineering and Mathematics (STEM)!
BLAST will offer a dynamic three-day residential summer experience on the
campus of Virginia
Tech (VT) and the University of Virginia (UVA) in the summer of
2014. Through innovative hands-on experiences taught by faculty members and
staff, students will explore the fun and excitement of STEM while residing on a
college campus. BLAST is geared to students who may have an interest in STEM or
an underlying aptitude for STEM academics, but have not yet discovered the
excitement of STEM.
Current 8th and 9th grade students from Virginia will have an opportunity
to choose from one of two sessions at Virginia Tech, July 13-16 or July 20-23,
or one session at the University of Virginia, July 27-30.
BLAST is a partnership between the Virginia Space Grant Consortium (VSGC), Virginia
Tech, the University of Virginia and the Commonwealth of Virginia.
