Alea Hudson, an 8th grade student at New Albany Middle School, will participate in the National Youth Leadership Forum:  Explore STEM Alumni at Villanova University in July.  The program is held to honor and inspire a select group of middle school students who have completed the National Youth Leadership Forum Explore STEM program.  These students will participate in three immersion experiences, including a discussion of robotic surgery with a pioneer in the industry, a unique hands-on ab experience focused on structural engineering and building materials, and an immersion into 3D virtual reality worlds.
