Check out this FREE opportunity to interact with other students from Virginia who are interested in the excitement of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM)!
BLAST offers a dynamic, three-day, residential summer experience on the campuses of Old Dominion University, Virginia Tech and University of Virginia. Through innovative hands-on sessions taught by faculty members and staff, students will explore the fun and excitement of STEM while residing in a college dorm.
Current Virginia 8th and 9th grade students with at least a C+ average and a desire to explore STEM opportunities are encouraged to apply.
BLAST is offered FREE of charge to students; however, transportation to and from the universities is the responsibility of each family. Students who have previously participated in BLAST are not eligible.
