Press Release

CHARLESTON, WV – July 14th 2016 – Gregory Michajlyszyn, a graduate of Imlay City High School in Imlay City, Michigan represented his state at the National Youth Science Camp.  Michajlyszyn 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 science camp was getting to operate the 40ft radio telescope at the National Radio Astronomy Observatory,” said Michajlyszyn.  “We gathered and analyzed data to draw some conclusions about the galaxy we live in.”

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.
