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.
