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."
