2020 National Youth Science Camp Competition Open.
Posted on 12/06/2019

The 57th annual National Youth Science Camp (NYSC) competition is now open to Alaskan high school students who will graduate by June 30, 2020.

NYSC is a great opportunity for all seniors, but especially those with a dedicated interest in scientific and engineering research. It is a residential science education program that honors and challenges two graduating high school science students from each state and others from selected countries around the world. Scientists from across the nation present lectures and handson science seminars and linger to interact informally with 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 National Youth Science Camp is offered at NO COST to its participants so that selected delegates may attend regardless of their financial status. All educational and recreational programming, as well as meals, lodging, and roundtrip air passage on scheduled airlines are provided free of charge to the delegates.
