BLAST Program

     A student in Ms. Brown’s Technology class, was selected to participate in the Building Leaders for Advancing Science and Technology (BLAST) program this summer at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville. She was nominated by her teacher based on her technology skills and excitement in the area of Robotics. She was chosen amongst other applicants based on her strong letter of recommendation, scholastic & academic records, and personal essay. The Virginia Space Grant Consortium (VSGC) is in partnership with UVA and the Commonwealth of Virginia to offer a three-day residential on campus experience for students to explore STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, & Mathematics) activities and meet other Virginia students excited and interested in these fields. We say “Congratulations!” and wish her the best of luck!
