Directed Studies at the National Youth Science Camp
Spotlight on Solar Training in the Community
Every year for the past 23 years Jeff has led directed studies on solar energy at the National Youth Science Camp (NYSC) near Bartow, WV, in the eastern mountains of the Potomac Highlands.
“The National Youth Science Camp (NYSCamp) is a residential science education program for young STEM enthusiasts the summer after they graduate from high school. Students from around the country (two are selected to represent each state and Washington, D.C.) are challenged academically in exciting lectures and hands-on studies and have opportunities to participate in outdoor adventures, and establish friendships that last a lifetime.”
