BRVGS Students Take Part in STEM Challenge

On Saturday, October 20, 5 BRVGS students - Dezyire Alexander (Orange), Zach Heidel (Louisa), Sarah Lacy (Nelson), Tristan Montero (Fluvanna), and Jenna Valesquez (Greene) - woke up bright and early to travel to Roanoke Valley Governor's School for Science and Technology for the annual Shelly STEM Challenge.

Students from eight Governor’s Schools across Virginia got together and did a great job solving an industry challenge involving stormwater management and remediation, organized and sponsored by a local engineering firm (Burns & McDonnell).  

Our students represented BRVGS very well! While this event was about problem-solving and overcoming challenges in a group, the firm did award gift cards to the judge’s top two teams, with Jenna’s team placing first, and Dezyire’s team placing 2nd. BRVGS is proud of all of the students who took part in this amazing competition!
