CHARLESTON, WV – July 14th 2016 – Natasha Granger, a graduate of Toll Gate High School in East Greenwich, Rhode Island represented her state at the National Youth Science Camp. Granger 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.
“My favorite parts of science camp were the directed studies and the directed overnighter at NRAO,” said Granger. “I made incredible friends at science camp because of the intentional small groups of camp.”
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.
Granger plans to attend the University of Rhode Island in the fall, to study nursing.
