Jiang Attends Prestigious National STEM Program – National Youth Science Camp
CHARLESTON, WV – August 2017 – Sunny Jiang, a graduate of the Texas Academy of Mathematics and Science represented Texas at the National Youth Science Camp. Jiang joined 108 other delegates from 50 states and eight countries in the prestigious annual STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) program. The National Youth Science Camp, located in the Monongahela National Forest near Green Bank, West Virginia, integrates engaging and thought provoking STEM presentations and hands-on activities with adventurous outdoor experiences and performing and applied arts.
Each year, graduating high school seniors with high achievements in STEM fields are selected from the 50 states, Washington, D.C. and eight countries, to attend the National Youth Science Camp. For almost a month, delegates attend lectures by science industry leaders, engineers, and researchers, but also experience the beauty of the West Virginia outdoors through backpacking, caving, mountain biking and rock climbing.
These future STEM leaders are selected on merit, based on their achievements, with the program provided to them at no cost, including travel, removing any financial barriers for attendance. Delegates also have the opportunity to gain individual hands on experience in STEM fields. The impact is profound and lifelong, according to Science Camp alumni, staff and presenters.
Jiang shared, “NYSC has changed me by making me more receptive to change. I realized that the more I know, the more I realize the amount I don’t know.”
The National Youth Science Camp is operated by the National Youth Science Foundation. To apply for the National Youth Science Camp, go to www.apply.nysc.org. To learn more about the programs and work of the National Youth Science Foundation, please visit www.nysf.com.
Jiang plans to attend Stanford University in the fall, to study Computer Science and Chemical Engineering.
