• Engage students in long-term and ongoing student-led STEM research.
• Work collaboratively and develop 21st Century skills while solving global problems.
Sponsored by the Burroughs Welcome Fund, is seeking 15-20 high school students in grades 9-12 who are willing to apply for this opportunity to:
• Participate in a one-week course at East Carolina University (all expenses paid) in early August 2017 to explore “cutting edge” research in several fields of science and medicine.
• To develop a research idea and conduct scientific research to solve a problem. Then, students will present and defend their research at the Regional Science and Engineering Fair at UNC-Wilmington in 2018.
The costs of meals, lodging (at ECU), and materials will be provided for all students who are accepted and complete the activities outlined in the grant. An informational session will be communicated and held at Greene Central for students accepted to participate in the Student Science Enrichment Program during the summer of 2107.

Two high school seniors have the opportunity of a lifetime - participation in the National Youth Science Camp (NYSC). Students receive a full scholarship to exchange ideas with scientists and other professionals from the academic and corporate worlds. The nearly month-long experience includes lectures and hands-on research projects presented by scientists from across the nation; overnight expeditions into a national forest; and a visit to Washington D.C. The selected delegates must not only demonstrate academic achievement in science, but also show potential for thoughtful scientific leadership.
The NYSC experience is offered at no cost to its participants so that selected delegates may attend regardless of their financial status. Educational and recreational programming, as well as meals, lodging, and round-trip air passage on scheduled airlines are provided free of charge. Tentative dates are June 14 – July 8, 2017.
The NYSC is held near Bartow in the eastern mountains of West Virginia, within the Monongahela National Forest. Application forms are available on the NYSC websitehttp://www.nysf.com/w/programs/nysc/. Applications must be submitted by March 1, 2017.
