CHARLESTON, WV – July 14th 2016 – Drew Gupta, a graduate of George Washington High School in Charleston, West Virginia represented his state at the National Youth Science Camp. Gupta 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, like backpacking, caving, mountain climbing and mountain biking. 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 Science Camp was being surrounded by highly intelligent individuals who endeavor to utilize their talent in the pursuit of leaving the world a better place,” said Gupta.
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.
