Applications Open for Virginia Aerospace Science and Technology Scholars (VASTS) Program

Over the past several years, a number of BRVGS students have participated an amazing program of study in space-related topics offered through five Virginia colleges and NASA's Langley Research Center in Hampton, Virginia. This opportunity is now available for application by this year's juniors and seniors.

To quote from the VASTS website, "The Virginia Aerospace Science and Technology Scholars (VASTS) program is an interactive on-line science, technology, engineering and mathematics learning experience highlighted by a seven-day residential summer academy at NASA Langley Research Center (LaRC) in Hampton, Va. Students selected to participate in the program are immersed in NASA-related research through interaction with scientists, engineers and technologists."

To see a video about VASTS produced by Choe Hellerman, a BRVGS/Nelson student who recently participated in the program, click on: VASTS Informational Video.  This video will tell you about the program and the application process.  You can see more info regarding the application at:

Applications to the VASTS program are due by November 11th.
