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 free to participants and runs from June 30 to July 24, 2011.
