CHARLESTON, WV – July 14th 2016 – Elena Milstead, a graduate of Scranton High School in New Blaine, Arkansas represented her state at the National Youth Science Camp. Milstead 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.
“My favorite part of camp was meeting all of the other delegates, especially those who were from different parts of the U.S. and the world.”
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.
Milstead plans to attend the University of Oklahoma in the fall, to study microbiology.
