    Two great opportunities are coming up in Hampton for students served by DBVI and DARS.

    Career Pathways for Individuals with Disabilities is sponsoring a 4-day Welding Camp where students will be introduced to the fundamentals of welding. Each student will create a project that they are able to bring home. 

    In the 2-day Cyber Security camp, students will work on two live cyber security scenarios to determine who did it, why they did it, and what the US response to the scenario should be. Students will also have a session on Scratch or Python coding. The academy  is taught by nationally recognized experts from the National Integrated Cyber Education Research Center. 

    When: High school students that are rising sophomores through graduating seniors in the 2017-2018 school year throughout the state are eligible. Richmond area students will come to the DBVI Azalea Avenue campus as day students, and out-of-town students will room Sunday through Thursday nights in the dormitories at VRCBVI.
