The 2016 delegation just returned from their second overnighter. Students went climbing, caving, biking, and hiking all over the woods in West Virginia. Hiking groups overcame high creek levels to succeed on the trails. Spelunkers and Climbers gripped wet rocks to conquer challenging routes. Albeit tired and road-weary, all overnight groups made it back to camp successfully.
“Chocolate Logic and the Nature of Science” was the topic of the evening lecture, by Dr. Paul Miller (Teaching Associate Professor of Physics at West Virginia University). A former delegate, staph, and director of the National Youth Science Camp, Dr. Miller shared his knowledge on effective science education and the role of science and scientists in our society.
