Press Release

CHARLESTON, WV – July 2016 – Nicolás Aguerre, a graduate of Escuela Provincial de Eovancion Technical in Argentina represented Argentina at the National Youth Science Camp.  Aguerre 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, graduating high school seniors, 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 part of science camp is getting to share something with people who are better than me doing the same stuff I like to do,” said Aguerre.  “I have improved my English a lot and opened my mind to things I hadn’t thought about.”

The National Youth Science Camp is operated by the National Youth Science Foundation. For more information, please visit

Aguerre plans to attend the University of Buenos Aires in the fall, to electrical engineering and musical performance.
