CHARLESTON, WV – July 14th 2016 –Darian Colgrove, a graduate of Grand Forks Central High School in Grand Forks, North Dakota represented his state at the National Youth Science Camp. Colgrove 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.
“My favorite part of camp was getting the opportunity to meet people from so many diverse backgrounds,” said Colgrove. “My experience at camp have opened my eyes to many different ideas and has inspired me to pursue diverse interests.”
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.
