Camp Invention teaches local children problem-solving skills

News

TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) – Rockets and robots are helping teach local children life-long skills.

Camp Invention continues in its second week at Indiana State University.

48 kids are taking part in all kinds of STEM activities. STEM stands for science, technology, engineering and math.

Activities this week include building rockets and bubble blowers.

These hands-on activities teach the children skills that they can use throughout their lives.

“That they have the ability to solve problems and if something doesn’t work when you’re trying to figure out a problem or issue that you’re trying to solve, then you might try it another way. You learn from what doesn’t work just as well as you learn from something that does work,” says Tim Moss, Camp Director.

Duke Energy and Vectren provided grant money that helped pay for the children to attend the camp.
