CHARLESTON, WV – July 14th 2016 – Mark Ali, a graduate of Queens Royal College in Trinidad and Tobago represented Trinidad and Tobago at the National Youth Science Camp. Ali 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 outdoor activities. Delegates also have the opportunity to participate in directed studies where they gain individual hands on experience in fields they find interesting.
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.
