Letter to the editor

Pella — To the editor,

I would like to thank Pella Community School District 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.

Fifty-seven local elementary students joined over 76,000 students nationwide in exciting hands-on STEM activities at Madison 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 Jill Parsons, her talented local teaching staff and counselors, and the creative students in Pella for their exceptional work.  


Susan Z. Clarke,

Regional Coordinator for Camp Invention
