CHARLSTON, WV – July 14th 2016 – David Li, a graduate of Commack High School in Commack, New York represented his state at the National Youth Science Camp. Li 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.
“There were so many peaks in my experience at the National Youth Science Camp, but my favorite is definitely hiking the North Fork trail, the monster that it is,” said Li.
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.
Li plans to attend the Harvard College in the fall, to study computer science.
