Kentwood High School student Son Do will represent the state at the National Youth Science Camp (NYSC) this summer in the West Virginia mountains.

The Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction selected Do to the state’s delegates.

Do is an active and passionate member of his school’s Robotics Club, where he designed a robot to use sensors and lasers to detect the reflection of light in order to navigate through a course.

Do has received a number of awards, including AP honors with Distinction and National Merit Commended awards. He has also served as an associated student body class officer and president of the Math Club for the past two years.

Established in 1963 as a part of West Virginia’s Centennial Celebration, the NYSC is an annual summer forum. Delegates from each state exchange ideas with leading scientists and other professionals from academic and corporate worlds.

Washington delegates who attend the NYSC will be challenged to explore new areas in the biological and physical sciences, art, and music with resident staff members. Delegates also present seminars covering their own areas of research and interest.
