Press Release

CHARLESTON, WV – July 14th 2016 – Drew Jones, a graduate of Albuquerque Academy in Albuquerque, New Mexico represented his state at the National Youth Science Camp. Jones 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 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.

“I have much more knowledge about difference in regional cultures due to the diversity of the camp,” said Jones.

The National Youth Science Camp is operated by the National Youth Science Foundation. For more information, please visit Click the photograph below to download a high resolution version suitable for publication.

Jones plans to attend the Colorado State University in the fall, to study electrical engineering.
