Senior Leeyanah Santos has been selected for the National Youth Science Camp in West Virginia, a residential science education program that deepens students’ knowledge in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) programs.

The program was created for young scientists the summer after high school graduation. Two students from each state are chosen to hear exciting lectures, have hands-on studies and volunteer opportunities, and to participate in an outdoor adventure program, gain a new appreciation for the great outdoors, all while establishing new friendships.

“I am really excited about the program. I’ve always loved all things related to science, math and technology and to be given an opportunity to do so makes me really happy. It’s even better that the program is an all-expenses paid program. I am looking forward to staying at Camp Pocahontas for a month,” said Santos.

Math teacher Deborah Kula said, “Being able to mentor Leeyanah, I am very excited for her in working with experienced scientists, going to lectures and having an opportunity to meet other students who have the same interests.”

Santos will be attending the University of Hawaii in the fall and majoring in psychology.
