To the Editor:
Lake City Public Schools and Bluff View Elementary School hosted the Camp Invention program this summer. Camp Invention Director Marie Stoker and the talented local teaching camp staff helped to prepare local youths for future success through practical application of the 21st century learning skills such as teamwork, creativity, critical thinking and problem-solving.
Twenty-three Lake City elementary students joined over 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.
Adult and youth staff and the students displayed exceptional creativity and inventiveness throughout the week.
