CHARLESTON, WV – July 14th 2016 – Alex Healy, a graduate of Corvallis High School in Hamilton, Montana represented his state at the National Youth Science Camp. Healy joined 102 other delegates from 48 states and 8 countries in the prestigious annual science program. The National Youth Science Camp, located in the Monongahela National Forest near Charleston West Virginia, integrates science programing 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.
“They’re all nice people without exception,” said Healy. “I’ll always look back to this camp with a feeling of completeness.”
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.
Healy plans to attend the Montana State University in the fall, to study mechanical engineering and aviation.
