Imagination Day Camp – Rising 7th and 8th Graders!
For the summer of 2017, Virginia Tech will be offering a residential component to their Imagination day camp for rising 7th and 8th graders, targeting students in the Richmond area. A bus will pick up students in Richmond on Sunday, July 9 and return them on Friday, July 14, 2017. They will stay in a Virginia Tech dorm with VT undergraduate student chaperones and eat at the dining hall. This is a FREE program! All costs are being covered through the generous support of The BRADLEY DEPARTMENT of ELECTRICAL and COMPUTER ENGINEERING at Virginia Tech. We are looking for 10 girls and 10 boys to take advantage of this amazing opportunity. There will be an additional 40 day students attending the camp from 9 AM – 4 PM each day.
Students can apply online or by paper. A teacher recommendation is also required. A paper brochure/application and teacher recommendation can be accessed here https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/0B92myMKCzZGFaXQ2bm8yS1hBR1E?usp=sharing. Application deadline is April 28, 2017.
BLAST – Rising 9th Graders!
For rising 9th graders, we 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.
