CHARLESTON, WV – July 14th 2016 – Emma Hostetter, a graduate of Waynesboro High School in Waynesboro, Virginia represented her state at the National Youth Science Camp.  Hostetter 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.

“Science Camp has opened my eyes to all the amazing opportunities out there and research that is being done. I’m excited to join in on and be on the frontier of it.” said Hostetter.
