For rising 9th graders, they also offer the BLAST (Building Leaders for Advancing Science and Technology) program, a dynamic three-day residential summer experience on the campuses of Virginia Tech, Old Dominion University, and the University of Virginia for rising 9th and 10th graders. 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 or an underlying aptitude for STEM academics, but have not yet discovered the excitement of STEM. Virginia Tech sessions run from July 16 – 19 and July 23 – 26, 2017. There is no cost to attend, but participants must supply their own transportation to and from Blacksburg . Online application deadline is February 6, 2017.
