CHARLESTON, WV–The 2015 session of the National Youth Science Camp starts today as delegates arrive at Charleston’s Yeager Airport and begin their nearly month-long experience with science enrichment. As delegates arrive, they will be transported to Coonskin Park to kick off their participation in the program.
Afterwards, they will travel to the nearby University of Charleston to spend the night in the dorms. They will hopefully start to adjust to the 11:00 P.M. to 7:00 A.M. sleep schedule that is structured at the camp. The next day, Charles Patton, the president of Appalachian Power, will deliver the Martha Wehrle Opening Lecture at the University of Charleston Ballroom (3rd Floor–Geary Student Union). The lecture will give a broad introduction to the energy industry and policies that it regulates and impacts. The event is free and open to anybody interested in coming.
