Pioneer School wrapped up their third annual summer STEM camp last week. About 94 students from grades 2nd through 6th participated this year. This year they did not have a theme, but teachers developed a variety of activities for the kids that included: using GPS to locate points around town, working with electrical circuits, making rockets, coding movements of a robot and making balloon powered cars.
Principal Wade Wilson shared how he thought the camp went this year stating, “The kids and staff all had a great time creating, thinking as engineers, and challenging themselves to solve various types of problems. Our staff did a great job developing activities that allowed students the opportunity to generate their own unique thoughts and designs for solving problems associated with each of their activities. Activities were creative, engaging, and students participated with enthusiasm. Several commented to me that they were sad that it was ending on Friday”.
