The National Youth Science Foundation is still accepting applications for positions on the Staph* of our youth science education programs for 2011. For more information, please see the online Staph Application. Opportunities exist for short-duration service at the WV Youth Science Camp (a one-week program) to full, two-month service at the National Youth Science Camp and the WV Governor’s School for Mathematics and Science.
*Staph – Yes, we know that this is not the dictionary spelling of the word staff in reference to a group of people employed by a company and that Staph is short for staphylococcus, a bacterium that typically occurs in clusters. But, the NYSF is full of tradition and the term Staph is endearingly used to capture the spirit of our infectious enthusiasm.
