The inaugural Youth STEAM Institute (YSI) is off to a great start. The YSI is hosted by the National Youth Science Foundation (NYSF) at its National Youth Science Center (NYSCenter) near Davis in Tucker County, West Virginia. Activities include programming in Python, Arduino micro-controllers, 3D printing using a Mojo printer donated by Stratasys (thanks guys!), and drones using the professional-quality DJI Inspire 1. To pre-register for 2018, please see http://ysi.nysf.com. Lodging is provided at the nearby Blackwater Falls State Park.
