Press Release
CHARLESTON, WV – July 14th 2016 – Soni Aggarwal, a graduate of the Charter School of Wilmington School in Newark, Delaware represented her state at the National Youth Science Camp.  Aggarwal 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’ve met so many different people and learned a lot about diverse cultures,” said Aggarwal.  “Meeting people who share the same passions as me is my favorite part.”

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.
