BLAST Program

     Congratulations are in order for two of Mrs. Robertson’s 8th grade Computer Applications students for being nominated and selected for the Building Leaders for Advancing Science and Technology (BLAST) program at Virginia Tech this summer! This is exciting, on-campus summer experience designed to increase student interest and curiosity in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). BLAST provides a residential opportunity to current 8th and 9th grade students. The program is a partnership between the Virginia Space Grant Consortium (VSGC), the University of Virginia, Virginia Tech and the Commonwealth of Virginia.
