The National Youth Science Camp 2018 (National Youth Science Camp) is going to be held in the United States from June 26 – July 22, 2018. This program is sponsored by the U.S. Department of State, the State of West Virginia and the National Youth Science Foundation, and is aimed at students with high academic achievement who have a demonstrated interest in the sciences.
What Will Participants Do?
Scientists from across the United States who work on some of the most groundbreaking topics in science will give presentations, deliver hands-on seminars and provide mentorship to student participants. In addition to attending these lectures and seminars, participants will also have the opportunity to explore new areas in the biological and physical sciences, along with art and music with residential staff members. There will be opportunities for some participants to present seminars on their own areas of interest and research. In addition, participants will visit Washington, D.C. to take advantage of some of the nation’s premier scientific, governmental, and cultural offerings. The experience includes three overnight expeditions into the Monongahela National Forest featuring backpacking, rock-climbing, caving, mountain-biking, and/or kayaking.
All expenses, including airfare, transportation, food, lodging and medical insurance will be covered by the U.S. Department of State.
