CHARLESTON, WV – July 14th 2016 – Sophia Liu, a graduate of Desert Vista High School in Phoenix, Arizona represented her state at the National Youth Science Camp.

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.

“It has shown me the impacts of human activity on our world and the importance of voicing concerns in regards to the environment and society,” said Liu.
