Camp Invention held at Wayne Elementary School


A total 50 campers took part in this year's Camp Invention at Wayne Elementary School.

Vicki Smith served as the director of this year's week-long program. She was assisted by teachers Jennifer Thomas, Mani Fernau and Annette Phipps.  Mary Kuchta and Jill Walling were adult volunteers.

In addition, seven junior high students and seven high school students served as helpers throughout the week.

Each day began with the students attending Base Camp. The campers were then engaged in four classes of Robotic Aquatics, NIHF's The Attic, Spacecaction, and Marble Arcade where they problem solved, collaborated, and invented numerous things throughout the week.

The students learned basic techniques related to each area at the beginning of the week and then built on their knowledge with various activities throughout the week. 

"I would like to give a special thank you to Wayne Community School for allowing us to use the Elementary School and State Nebraska Bank and Trust for providing multiple scholarships for the camp," Smith said.
