USD 410 students got to participate for free in STEM camp in July thanks to funding through the school district. 32 students entering 3rd – 6th grades were challenged to solve problems and build solutions using common household materials.

During the 4 day camp they completed over 10 challenges, including building parachutes, constructing catapults for gummy bears and we ended the week making marble mazes” said HMHS teach Tamara Cassidy.
