CHARLESTON, WV – July 14th 2016 – Chloe Ibsen, a graduate of Theodore Roosevelt High School in Des Moines, Iowa represented her state at the National Youth Science Camp.  Ibsen 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.

“I love hearing people talk about issues they are passionate about,” said Ibsen.  “I feel that I have a new community that I am a part of and have made connections that will continue throughout my life.”

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.
