Press Release

CHARLESTON, WV – July 14th 2016 –Rose Fields, a graduate of Omaha North Magnet High School in Omaha, Nebraska represented her state at the National Youth Science Camp.  Fields 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.

“I have learned so much in the past few weeks,” said Fields.  “I’ve learned how to slow my mind down and live in the moment, and that has helped me feel more balanced, physically, mentally, and emotionally.”

The National Youth Science Camp is operated by the National Youth Science Foundation. For more information, please visit Click the photograph below to download a high resolution version suitable for publication.

Fields plans to attend the University of Washington in the fall, to study biomedical engineering.
