CHARLESTON, WV – July 14th 2016 – Priscilla Li, a graduate of Spring Valley High School in Columbia, South Carolina represented her state at the National Youth Science Camp. Li joined 104 other delegates from 48 states and 8 countries in the prestigious annual science program. The National Youth Science Camp, located in the 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 part of camp was getting to try activities out of my comfort zone,” said Li. “I have become more open-minded to different cultures and new topics in science.”
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.
