(Washington, DC) – District of Columbia students have an opportunity to attend the prestigious National Youth Science Camp in West Virginia this summer with peers from other states and Latin America, all expenses paid. Applications are due by the close of business on Friday, February 28, 2011.
Two graduating high school seniors from across the District of Columbia will join students from each state and peers from several Latin American and Caribbean nations at the National Youth Science Camp. All participants will get the opportunity to work alongside practicing scientists on research projects spanning various fields as well as present their own seminars. The three-week, life-changing experience is free for students, including travel to and from West Virginia. Applications will be reviewed by a committee formed by the DC State Board of Education, with two delegates and one alternate selected to attend the 2011 camp.
