CHARLESTON, WV – July 14th 2016 – Abdullah Choudhury, a graduate of West Springfield High School in Springfield, Virginia represented his state at the National Youth Science Camp. Choudhury joined 102 other delegates from 48 states and 8 countries in the prestigious annual science program. The National Youth Science Camp, located in the rustic Monongahela National Forest near Charleston West Virginia, integrates science programming with music, art and outdoor activities.
Each year, every state and several countries send up to two delegates, to the National Youth Science Camp. Delegates attend lectures by science industry leaders, engineers, and researchers, but also participate in outdoor activities. Delegates also have the opportunity to participate in directed studies where they gain individual hands on experience in fields they find interesting.
“The social aspect of this camp is awesome,” said Choudhury. “I can be sitting at a bench alone, and within minutes I’ll have a group of people around me from all over the nation and world making conversation with me and one another.”
The National Youth Science Camp is operated by the National Youth Science Foundation. For more information, please visit www.nysf.com. Click the photograph below to download a high resolution version suitable for publication.
Choudhury plans to attend the Virginia Tech in the fall, to study microbiology.
