STEM education camp to be held at Carroll Catholic in June | #education | #technology | #training


Kids who love to explore and learn new things about science will enjoy Camp Invention, offered this summer by Carroll Catholic School.

Shelly Maxheimer, the junior high level math and science teacher at CCS, will be leading the camp that focuses on teaching children in grades K-6 how to prepare for the future by using the fundamentals of math and science.

She fully understood the mission of the camp because her sons, Briar and Kep Maxheimer, both attended a camp hosted in Mount Zion.

“My boys enjoyed it so much because the hands on activities. When I started working at Carroll I wondered if the camp would come to Logan County. After CCS graciously let us hold it here and with the approval of the National Inventors Hall of Fame®, we were able to offer the opportunity to the children in Logan County,” said Maxheimer.

Shelly Maxheimer, Camp Director for Camp Invention, will provide an educational and fun filled camp at Carroll Catholic School in June.

The camp, which runs 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. June 13-17, will be a place filled with science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) courses that embraces hands-on learning. The cost of the camp is $245 and registration is available at: invent.org/camp. There is a $25 discount for those who register before the March 31 deadline and there is an additional discount for families who have multiple siblings attending the camp. Students will need to bring their own lunch.
