CHARLESTON, WV – July 14th 2016 – Nick Langston, a graduate of Subacio Academy in Fort Smith, Arkansas represented Arkansas at the National Youth Science Camp. Langston 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 scientists. 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.
“Science Camp has been a wonderful opportunity to explore areas of study I’ve never been exposed to,” said Langston. “I feel that I will leave the National Youth Science Camp as a better informed and more globally aware person.”
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.
