The student pilot stated that the airplane bounced during his third touch and go landing. The airplane veered off the left side of the runway into the grass. The student reported he was letting the airplane slow when it contacted a road (asphalt) which led to the VOR on the airport. The road was higher than the grass and the nose gear collapsed. Substantial damage to the firewall resulted from the nose gear collapse.
