CHARLESTON, WV – July 14th 2016 – Morgan Barron, a graduate of Riverton High School in Riverton, Utah represented her state at the National Youth Science Camp.  Barron 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.

“I have really enjoyed participating in directed studies and listening to presentations given by experts in the field they are passionate about,” said Barron.  “At Science Camp, I have been able to do hard things which have increased my confidence in my varied abilities.”
