The Ohio Academy of Science is proud to support the
National Youth Science Camp!

In its 59th year, the NYSCamp has traditionally been a residential science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) program in the eastern mountains of West Virginia designed to honor and challenge some of the nation’s rising STEM leaders and provide them with opportunities to engage with STEM professionals and participate in exciting outdoor activities. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, however, the 2021 NYSCamp will be an entirely virtual experience. The 2021 NYSCamp will be held virtually for two accomplished high school graduates from each state in the USA, plus Washington DC and select countries . More information can be found at
