Campers Get Inventive At Wisdom Lane Middle School
Students at Camp Invention and STEM Camp in the Levittown Public School District participated in activities that challenged their physics, science and technology skills. This summer, Levittown Public Schools students are flexing their creative thinking and engineering skills at STEM Camp and Camp Invention, both held at Wisdom Lane Middle School.
On July 19, STEM Camp students, who are entering sixth, seventh and eighth grade this upcoming school year, took to the halls to test out their self-built robots, equipped with remote-controlled movement and clamps to grab objects. Multiple teams were challenged to move objects such as blocks with their new motorized tools.
STEM Camp students also used recycled materials to design a bottle rocket that would have the most effective flight. Using cardboard and tape, plastic bottles became rockets ready to fly high.
At Camp Invention, which includes students entering third, fourth and fifth grades, students crafted imaginative solutions to different problems, such as getting a ball to roll through a series of cardboard ramps. While enjoying the sunny weather, students worked in pairs to move a beach ball with foam tubes, engaged in counting games and ran in circles during a game of duck-duck-goose.
By engaging in challenging and fun activities throughout the summer, students get a head start for the coming school year while forming strong bonds with their peers.
