CHARLESTON, WV – July 14th 2016 – Tate Greene, a graduate of Prestonburg High School in Prestonberg, Kentucky represented his state at the National Youth Science Camp.  Greene 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 out-door activities.  Delegates also have the opportunity to participate in directed studies where they gain individual hands on experience in fields they find interesting.

“I’ve gotten to meet dozens of incredible future scientists who are also planning on changing the world like I will,” said Greene.

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.
