The New Mexico Academy of Science (NMAS, www.nmas.org) administers the National Youth Science Camp (NYSC) program in New Mexico. Judges from NMAS will select two New Mexico high school seniors to attend the science camp this summer based upon their academic achievement, leadership in school and community activities, and a genuine interest in the sciences. The NMAS Coordinator for NYSC is Dr. Richard E. Nygren (Sandia National Laboratories, firstname.lastname@example.org).
Last year’s attendees were Dennis Huang from La Cueva High School in Albuquerque and Anjik Ghosh from Albuquerque Academy, and Rana Chan from La Cueva High School was the alternate. In 2013 the attendees were Maria Morrow from El Dorado High School in Albuquerque and Evan Liu of Albuquerque Academy, and Stephen Jenkins of Onate High School in Las Cruces was the alternate.
Students from around the country attend the NYSC in the wilderness of the Monongahela National Forest in the eastern mountains of West Virginia's Potomac Highlands. Visiting scientists are invited to the camp based on their reputation as leaders in their field(s) and on their ability to share up-to-date research with the students. Their exciting lectures and the hands-on experiences expose delegates to current work across the spectrum of scientific disciplines. Students have many opportunities to increase their appreciation for the great outdoors and push themselves physically in an extensive outdoor program. Many students establish friendships that last a lifetime.
