Alumni News
Jonah Weissman, Class of 2014 , was 1 of 12 students in Virginia selected for the NASA/VIMS Summer Residential Governor’s School
He spent a month working with a mentor at NASA/AMES doing research on visualizing turbulence off a plane wing.
Also this summer, Jonah was a javascript developer for ChartIQ, a startup firm in Charlottesville. Jonah was featured in an article last week that outlined some of the work he did.
Both of these opportunities arose from the outstanding preparation in math & science that he gained at Peabody!
