National Youth Science Camp for current seniors


The National Youth Science Camp® is a residential science education program for young scientists the summer after they graduate from high school. Students from around the country 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.

NYSC 2014 will be TBA

The National Youth Science Camp is made possible through the planning and fund-raising of the National Youth Science Foundation®, a nonprofit organization with a mission to honor, sustain, and encourage youth interest and excellence in science by conducting comprehensive informal science education programs that provide opportunity for constructive interaction with others and emphasize the social value of thoughtful scientific careers.

The National Youth Science Camp program is strengthened through a philosophy that encourages delegates to experience each day by day. This philosophy permits the Staph* to plan numerous special events that surprise the participants. This philosophy also encourages the delegates to give undistracted attention to guest presenters. The National Youth Science Camp does not, therefore, publish detailed program calendars.

In 2009, Rensselaer accepted 42 students to participate in the two, two-week sessions in July, from over 200 applicants from around the nation. They are exceptional young men and women from 15 states including California, Connecticut, Florida, Illinois, Massachusetts, Maryland, Maine, Minnesota, Missouri, New Jersey, New York, Oklahoma, Rhode Island, Tennessee and Texas.

Participation in the PREFACE Summer Program provides the student participants with an extraordinary opportunities:

·         PREFACE provides experiences using an engineering process approach to resolve a problem (e.g., design, troubleshoot, innovate, model, revise, and assess outcomes); 

·         Activities, classes and workshops create opportunities to develop leadership and team-building skills;

·         Students explore career opportunities available in the engineering professions as a means to develop a deeper understanding of the role and expectations of an engineering education;

·         The PREFACE Program presents a snapshot of college life and its academic, social, cultural, and environmental experiences.


Pre-College Summer Programs at NJIT

Gives students the chance to explore careers in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) and to experience the relationship between these subjects and their applications to everyday life.

Students become "engineers," "mathematicians," "architects," "managers" or "scientists" and learn how to design solutions to problems that affect everyone. The Center for Pre College Programs also offers students the opportunity to learn about college life.

Students experience a genuine college classroom environment, with tough courses to challenge their young minds. This could reinforce the curriculum from high school as well as improve one's skills.

These programs offer students a chance to look ahead from high school and begin to think of their futures. Student programs include the following :
