Press Release

CHARLESTON, WV – July 14th 2016 – Samantha Harper, a graduate of the Academy for Science and Design in Hallis, NH represented her state at the National Youth Science Camp.  Harper joined 102 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.

“I love the surprises and the community they formed,” said Harper.  “I also love how the outdoor experiences push me out of my comfort zone.”

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.

Harper plans to attend the University of St. Andrews in the fall, to study Mathematics and Biology.
