Two Alaska high school seniors will receive a full scholarship to exchange ideas with scientists and other professionals from the academic and corporate worlds in the National Youth Science Camp.
The nearly month-long experience includes lectures and hands-on research projects presented by scientists from across the nation, overnight camping trips into the Monogahela National Forest in West Virginia and a visit to Washington, D.C. The selected delegates must not only demonstrate academic achievement in science, but also show potential for thoughtful scientific leadership.
The camp is offered at no cost to its participants. The camp runs from June 30 to July 24.
Applications must be received by Jan. 21. Application forms are available at www.nysc.org. For more information contact Wayne Woodgate at firstname.lastname@example.org or (907) 465-2826.
