The United States Embassy in Argentina invites all students interested in the sciences to apply for the National Youth Science Camp that it's held in the United States between the months of June and July each year. This program is sponsored by the U.S. Department of State, the state of West Virginia and the National Youth Science Foundation, and is aimed at students with high academic achievement who have a demonstrated interest in the sciences.

What Will Participants Do?

Scientists from across the United States who work on some of the most groundbreaking topics in science will give presentations, deliver hands-on seminars and will interact informally as mentors with student participants. Participants will also have the opportunity to explore new areas in the biological and physical sciences, along with art and music with residential staff members. They also may present seminars on their own areas of interest and research. In addition, participants will visit Washington, D.C. to take advantage of some of the nation’s premier scientific, governmental, and cultural offerings. The experience includes three overnight expeditions into the Monongahela National Forest featuring backpacking, rock-climbing, caving, mountain-biking, and/or kayaking.

All expenses, including airfare, transportation, food, lodging and medical insurance will be covered by the U.S. Department of State.
