Deadline nears for National Youth Science Camp competition

The National Youth Science Camp is a residential science education program that challenges two graduating high school students from each state. Scientists present lectures and hands-on seminars and interact informally with stufdent delegates.

Delegates explore new areas in the biological and physical sciences, art, and music with staff members. Opportunities are provided for delegates to present seminars covering their own areas of interest and research. A visit to Washington, D.C. permits delegates to visit some of the nation’s premier scientific, governmental and cultural facilities. The experience includes overnight excursions into the Monongahela National Forest. More information is available online at Applications must be submitted online at by 7:59 p.m. Alaska Standard Time on March 1.
