CHARLESTON, WV – July 14th 2016 – Olivia Gong, a graduate of the Academies@Englewood in Montvale, New Jersey represented her state at the National Youth Science Camp. Gong 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.
“Overall, I enjoyed being disconnected from the rest of society for a bit. It forces you to get to know everyone around you,” said Gong.
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.
Gong plans to attend Carnegie Mellon University in the fall, to study business administration.
