The 2014 National Youth Science Camp (NYSC) applications are now available on the NYSC website at http://apply.nysc.org .  Two Maryland high school seniors will receive a full scholarship to exchange ideas with scientists and other professionals from the academic and corporate worlds.  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; 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 NYSC experience is offered at no cost to its participants, so that selected delegates may attend regardless of their financial status.  Contributions to the National Youth Science Foundation® allow delegates to participate in this “once in a lifetime” experience.  Educational and recreational programming, as well as meals, lodging, and round-trip air passage on scheduled airlines are provided free of charge.
 
Delegates arrive in Charleston, West Virginia, on Friday, June 27, and depart on Sunday, July 20, 2014.  The NYSC is held near Bartow in the eastern mountains of West Virginia, within the Monongahela National Forest. 
 

                                                                         

 

                                              Applications must be submitted by Friday, March 1, 2014.

                                                            Students may apply at http://apply.nysc.org .
 

(If you have any questions regarding this experience, please contact Michelle Harman at 301-334-8911.  I have had the distinct pleasure of serving as an instructor at the Camp and highly recommend applying to any senior who may be interested in a science-related career.)
