Susan Clarke, regional consultant for Camp Invention
I would like to thank the College of St. Benedict 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, 72 local elementary students at College of St. Benedict joined more than 77,000 students nationwide in exploring STEM concepts through exciting, hands-on, problem-solving activities.
I especially want to thank the Camp Invention Director Missy Tellinghuisen, the talented local teachers and youth staff for inspiring the St. Joseph students, who displayed amazing creativity and resourcefulness throughout the week.
