For three days in mid-July, 15 North Carolina high school rising juniors and seniors enrolled in the North Carolina School of Math and Sciences’ Summer Ventures in Sciences and Mathematics (SVSM) program at Appalachian State University set up camp in Edgemont — a wilderness community on the banks of Wilson Creek about 15 miles as the crow flies from Boone.
