Letter to the Editor: Thank you for hosting Camp Invention

Dear Editor: I would like to thank West Fargo Public Schools for hosting the Camp Invention program this summer. Camp Invention is tackling our country's innovation deficit by encouraging exploration and curiosity in our youth and developing such 21st century learning skills such as creativity, teamwork, and critical thinking.

Eighty-three local elementary students joined over 76,000 students nationwide in exciting hands-on STEM activities at Westside Elementary School. They were challenged to solve a variety of problems using science, technology, engineering, and math concepts that they learned throughout the week.

I especially want to thank camp director Kaye Fischer, her talented local teaching staff and counselors, and the creative students in West Fargo for their exceptional work.

Susan Z. Clarke

Regional Coordinator for Camp Invention
