Alessandro Lindahl-Banducci, of Shorewood High School, and Naheed Arang, of Arlington High School, were selected earlier this month to represent Washington state at the National Youth Science Camp. The camp will be held near Bartow, W. Va., in the Monogahela National Forest, from June 26 to July 20.

Lindahl-Banducci leads his high school’s FIRST Robotics programming department. In 2009, he was one of the youngest students to receive a grant for the Ashoka Youth Ventures, which helps students create social change. He enjoys music and photography in his spare time. 

Arang is Arlington High School’s Senior Class Vice President. She won the 2012 Biotechnology Student of the Year. She is involved in Medical Explorers, a program that offers students a look into the careers of health care professionals. She will be graduating at 16 years old, at the top of her class, with distinct honors and achievements. She enjoys volunteering at her local hospitals and clinics.

Established in 1963 as a part of West Virginia’s Centennial Celebration, the National Youth Science Camp is an annual summer forum that gathers two delegates representing each state to exchange ideas with leading scientists and other professionals from academic and corporate worlds. The camp’s academic program is complemented by an outdoor recreation program, which takes advantage of the Science Camp’s location in the Monongahela National Forest.

The National Youth Science Foundation®, based in Charleston, W. Va., covers all expenses, including travel. More information available here.
