Cayden Ryman, 8, of Front Royal, will join outstanding elementary school students from across the state this summer to take part in the National Youth Leadership Forum-Pathways to STEM, taking place in Washington, D.C.
The program is one of the Envision by WorldStrides family of programs that enable students to explore their interests and experience learning beyond the classroom.
Cayden was nominated to attend the forum by his third-grade teacher at E. Wilson Elementary. With dreams of being a scientist, he will also discover how to program a robot and learn about detective work and crime scene investigation to solve a case.
