CHARLESTON, WV – July 14th 2016 – William Brabston, a graduate of Blue Valley West High School in Overland Park, Kansas represented his state at the National Youth Science Camp. Brabston 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 camp was the interactions between the delegates, staph and guests and the lifelong connections that are formed,” said Brabston. “My experience has opened my eyes to the vast fields of science and all the cutting edge projects occurring right now.”
The National Youth Science Camp is operated by the National Youth Science Foundation. For more information, please visit www.nysf.com. Click the photograph below to download a high resolution version suitable for publication.
Brabston plans to attend the University of Kansas in the fall, to study aerospace engineering.
