Press Release

CHARLESTON, WV – July 14th 2016 – Grace Bower, a graduate of Hillsdale High School in San Mateo, California represented her state at the National Youth Science Camp.  Bower joined 102 other delegates from 48 states and 8 countries in the prestigious annual science program.  The National Youth Science Camp, located in the rustic 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 having all of the different presenters and lecturers,” said Bower.  “It’s really interesting to hear about all of the diverse backgrounds and experiences.”

The National Youth Science Camp is operated by the National Youth Science Foundation. For more information, please visit Click the photograph below to download a high resolution version suitable for publication.
