2012 National Youth Science Camp
Encourage high school seniors to apply for the 2012 National Youth Science Camp!

The National Youth Science Camp (NYSC), hosted and sponsored by the National Youth Science Foundation, is an intense all expenses paid three-week camp (June 27-July 21, 2012) that honors and challenges two graduating high school students from each state and others from selected countries around the world. Scientists who work on some of the most provocative topics in science today present lectures and hands-on science seminars and linger to interact informally with the student delegates. Delegates are challenged to explore new areas in the biological and physical sciences, art, and music with resident staff members. Opportunities are provided for delegates to present seminars covering their own areas of interest and research. The NYSC will be held at a facility located in the Monongahela National Forest in West Virginia. A visit to Washington D.C. permits delegates to visit some of the nation's premier scientific, governmental, and cultural facilities. More information is available at www.nysc.org.

To apply, students must download the application packet from http://2012.nysc.org/delegates/apply/ and follow the enclosed instructions. Applications must be received by Cheryl Kleckner at the Oregon Department of Education no later than February 17, 2012.
