DAVIS, WV- Students in the first cohort of the  Youth Science Discovery Experience (YSDE) completed their first research weekend at the Canaan Valley Institute (CVI) located in Davis, West Virginia.  Students spent their time researching diverse projects, exploring the pristine surrounding environment and receiving instruction and lecture from visiting and resident scientists.
