The National Youth Science Foundation and the Arkansas Department of Education has selected Cabot High School Senior Garrett Frandson to participate as a delegate in the 49th year of the National Youth Science Camp held in West Virginia this summer.
The National Youth Science Camp is an annual summer forum where two delegates representing each state exchange ideas with leading scientists and other professionals from academic and corporate worlds. Lectures and hands-on research projects are presented by scientists from across the United States who work on some of the most provocative topics in science today - topics such as fractal geometry, the human genome project, global climate changes, the history of the universe, the fate of our rain forests, and robotics. Delegates also present seminars covering their own areas of research and interest.

Garrett was accepted to the NASA INSPIRE program in 2011 and has been a member of the National Honor Society and National Spanish Honor Society for three years. In addition to excellent academic qualifications, he is a highly motivated leader who has volunteered and tutored in his community.
