UPDATE: North Fargo standoff ends after armed man surrenders

Letter to the Editor: Thank you to Camp Invention hosts

I would like to thank West Fargo Public Schools and Westside Elementary School for hosting the Camp Invention program this summer. Camp Invention director Kaye Fischer and talented local teaching camp staff helped to prepare local youth for future success through practical application of the 21st century learning skills such as teamwork, creativity, critical thinking and problem-solving.

One hundred-and-twelve West Fargo, 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. I especially want to thank the adult and youth staff and the students in West Fargo for the exceptional creativity and inventiveness that they displayed throughout the week.
