CHARLESTON, WV – July 14th 2016 – Rebekah Anderson, a graduate of Spring Hill High School in Spring Hill, Kansas represented her state at the National Youth Science Camp. Anderson 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 the outdoors 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.
“I enjoyed getting the chance to experience many different outdoor activities and the opportunity to learn for the sake of learning,” said Anderson. “This experience has allowed me to become a bit more open minded about topics and people.”
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.
Anderson plans to attend the Kansas State University in the fall, to study chemical engineering.
