National Youth Science Camp offers high school seniors chance to learn first-hand from scientists

Delaware will send two 2015 high school graduates to West Virginia this summer to attend the National Youth Science Camp on full scholarships. The 3 ½-week experience (June 17 to July 11) includes lectures and hands-on research projects presented by scientists from across the nation, overnight expeditions into the Monongahela National Forest and a visit to the nation’s capital. The selected delegates must demonstrate academic achievement in science and show potential for thoughtful scientific leadership. 

The NYSC experience is offered at no cost to participants so that selected delegates may attend regardless of their financial status. Educational and recreational programming, as well as meals, lodging, and round-trip airfare are covered. This is possible thanks to contributions to the National Youth Science Foundation. 

The application period runs until March 1, 2015. Applicants must commit to the entire NYSC time. Application packets are available online at http://apply.nysc.org

For questions regarding the application procedures and/or general information about the program, contact  Dr. John Moyer, Delaware Department of Education’s NYSC program coordinator, at john.moyer@doe.k12.de.us.  For more information on NYSC and to see images of previous camps, visit the website www.nysc.org.
