CHARLESTON, WV – July 14th 2016 – Erin Harper, a graduate of the Academy for Science and Design in Hollis, New Hampshire represented her state at the National Youth Science Camp.  Harper 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 the opportunity to learn from experts in their perspective fields,” said Harper.  “The different perspective from all over the country and world have given me a broader world view, and a desire to experience other cultures.”
