Press Release

CHARLESTON, WV – July 14th 2016 – Dakota Loberger, a graduate of Hillsboro High School in Hillsboro, Oregon represented his state at the National Youth Science Camp.  Loberger 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.

“Structurally this camp had been amazing in its opportunity to get to know others,” said Loberger.  “It’s inspiring and opens your eyes to opportunities, but it also gives you connections to take those opportunities in the future.”

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.

Loberger plans to attend the University of Southern California in the fall, to study physics.
