The WV GSMS program is a residential summer program for rising West Virginian 9th graders that combines the strengths of the National Youth Science Foundation and the National Radio Astronomy Observatory in Green Bank, WV to present a unique educational program. The NYSF operates the National Youth Science Camp®, a program that has served the nation’s brightest graduating high school students since its inception in 1963, and the Youth Science Discovery Experience, a West Virginia focused project-based program. The NRAO is a national research center and is well-equipped for science education.
