I would like to thank Worthington District 518 and Prairie Elementary for hosting the Camp Invention program this summer.
Camp Invention director Jodi Hansen and talented local teaching camp staff helped to prepare local youths for future success through practical application of 21st-century learning skills such as teamwork, creativity, critical thinking and problem-solving. Forty-five Worthington elementary students joined more than 77,000 students nationwide in tackling exciting hands-on STEM challenges at the Camp Invention program. The science, technology, engineering and math concepts that they learned were used to solve a series of real-world problems that required innovative solutions.
I especially want to thank the adult and youth staff and the students in Worthington for the exceptional creativity and inventiveness that they displayed throughout the week.
