CHARLSTON, WV – July 14th 2016 – Isabelle Hua, a graduate of Interlake High School in Bellevue, Washington represented her state at the National Youth Science Camp.  Hua 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.

“I loved getting to know other people’s backgrounds and interests similar and  different from mine,” said Hua.  “I see science and its role in society in a new light, and am inspired to make a positive difference in the world.”

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.
