STEM Day 4 Girls 2015

Alumni and current students volunteered at ARGS for the first STEM Day 4 Girls on Saturday, July 18, 2015!  Seventeen middle school girls from Petersburg, Prince George, Chesterfield, and Norfolk participated in this FREE event full of hands-on STEM activities!  The girls learned to solder, built Persistence of Vision wands, wrote STEM haikus, and created 3D models!  

A HUGE thanks to our sponsors:

Everyone, volunteers included, had a great time! Can't wait until next summer!!

Now You Can Pay TSA Dues Online!!

Yearly dues for TSA are $11.00 ($9.00 - national dues and $2.00 - Virginia dues).  In order to take part in the TSA competitions and activities, students must be official members of TSA.

I just wanted to let you know that you may now pay 2015-2016 Technology Student Association (TSA) dues via the ARGS online payment system.  Please note that there is a small convenience fee when using this system.

You can get to the system by going to http://www.args.us, clicking on "Students/Parents" on the menu, and then clicking on "Online School Payments" under the Connect heading.  You will then be taken to a secure portal to make your payment.  Be sure to scroll all the way down to "TSA Dues for 2015-2016."  

You may also still mail a check to ARGS. Please make the check out to "ARGS" and write "TSA 2015-2016" in the memo line.

We will be holding elections for TSA offices at the beginning of the next school year and I have attached the draft by-laws for the newly re-established ARGS TSA

You can find information about available TSA activities, scholarships and competitions  at http://www.TSAweb.org and http://www.VirginiaTSA.org.

Thank you again for your support and enjoy your summer!
