CHARLESTON, WV – July 14th 2016 – Jennifer Rojas, a graduate of Colegio Centifico de Alajula in Costa Rica represented Costa Rica at the National Youth Science Camp. Rojas 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 is meeting new people, with excellent ideas and different points of view about several topics,” said Rojas. “I was able to do things that I never do in my country like hiking, biking and climbing.”
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.
