The National Youth Science Foundation recruits this unique group of individuals from across the globe. Staph are the enormously talented young people who run our seasonal programs. While many are recruited directly from the ranks of our programs, all are selected for their outstanding qualifications and unending enthusiasm.
The Staph tradition dates back to the first National Youth Science Camp in 1963, and continues as each generation passes it’s knowledge onto the next. Staph are the crucial “secret ingredient” to all NYSF programs.
*Staph is a traditional spelling; Our enthusiasm is infectious!
