BRAZIL — During their pre-departure orientation at the United States Embassy in Brazil, the two delegates to the 2013 National Youth Science Camp met with Vice President Joe Biden and his wife Dr. Jill Biden. The National Youth Science Camp is a residential science education program for young scientists the summer after they graduate from high school. Students representing each state, Washington, DC, and countries around the world are challenged academically in exciting lectures and hands-on studies, and have voluntary opportunities to participate in an outdoor adventure program, gain a new and deep appreciation for the great outdoors, and establish friendships that last a lifetime. All participants attend free of charge.
