Camp Invention Updates!

Led by local educators, the weeklong Camp Invention program immerses elementary school children in exciting hands-on activities disguised as fun, summer activities.  Participants will spend their time problem solving and designing spacecrafts, helping to redesign and clean up a polluted city, and invent fantastical balloon bursting machines with their peers. Each lesson explores connections between science, technology, engineering, and innovation.

For children entering grades 1 through 6
Cost: $215
Program Dates:     8/6/2012 - 8/9/2012  8:00 AM - 4:00 PM
**Discounts are available to those who register early!

Great job collecting Boxtops and Labels for Education, again!!  The Box Top Collection was 5,950, equaling $595.00 for the school from this collection and a total for the year of $1161(so far)!.  The Labels for Education Collection was 1,973 points (these points allow the teachers to buy items for their classrooms). 

The classroom winners were:

Box Tops - Wilmoth which collected 685 box tops
Labels - Ferrigan (we do no have a count, she just had several large rolls of labels so we determined her the winner!)
