Letter: Many helped with Camp Invention program
By Susan Z. Clarke, Regional Consultant for Camp Invention, Eden Prairie
I would like to thank Worthington District 518 for hosting the Camp Invention program this summer. Camp Invention allows children to transform their natural curiosity into big ideas by presenting real-world challenges that require them to use creativity, innovation, problem-solving skills and teamwork.
This summer, 47 local elementary students at Prairie Elementary joined more than 77,000 students nationwide in exploring STEM concepts through exciting, hands-on problem-solving activities.
I especially want to thank Camp Invention director Jodi Hansen, the talented local teachers and youth staff for inspiring the Worthington students, who displayed amazing creativity and resourcefulness throughout the week.
