CHARLESTON, WV – July 14th 2016 – Jaden Moon, a graduate of West Valley High School in Yakima, Washington represented his state at the National Youth Science Camp. Moon 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 has been the chance to meet people from all across the country,” said Moon. “Science camp has opened my mind to different paths I can take. There are so many things I never knew about that interest me now because of NYSC.”
The National Youth Science Camp is operated by the National Youth Science Foundation. For more information, please visit www.nysf.com. Click the photograph below to download a high resolution version suitable for publication.
Moon plans to attend the Western Washington University in the fall, to study environmental policy and environmental engineering.
