CHARLESTON, WV – July 14th 2016 – Michael Li, a graduate of Conestoga High School in Paoli, Pennsylvania represented his state at the National Youth Science Camp. Li 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 have loved meeting all sorts of people from all over the country and the world,” said Li. “Their varied experience has broadened my view and have made me appreciate my own experiences as well.”
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.
Li plans to attend the Princeton University in the fall, to study applied math and economics.
