Press Release

CHARLESTON, WV – July 14th 2016 – Samantha Chen, a graduate of Cranbrook Kingswood Upper School in Midland, Michigan represented her state at the National Youth Science Camp.  Chen 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.

“My favorite part of Science Camp is meeting so many distinguished lecturers and delegates from all around the country and the world,” said Chen.  “My experience at Science Camp has allowed me to briefly explore several occupations that I would have never considered otherwise.”

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.

Chen plans to attend Carleton College in the fall, to study engineering.
