To the Editor:
I would like to thank ADM Community Schools for hosting the Camp Invention program this summer. Camp Invention allows children to transform their natural curiosity into big ideas by presenting real-world challenges that require them to use creativity, innovation, problem-solving skills, and teamwork.
This summer, 72 local elementary students at ADM Middle School joined over 77,000 students nationwide in exploring STEM concepts through exciting, hands-on problem-solving activities. I especially want to thank the Camp Invention Director Amanda Parker, the talented local teachers and youth staff for inspiring the Adel students, who displayed amazing creativity and resourcefulness throughout the week.
