Two members of the Governor's School of Southside Virginia were among 180 students selected to attend the Virginia Aerospace Science and Technology Scholars (VASTS) program. VASTS 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 in Hampton. Students are immersed in NASA-related research through interaction with scientists, engineers and technologists.
