I would like to thank Central Lakes College for hosting the Camp
Invention program this summer. Camp Invention Director Dennis Lamb and the
talented local teaching camp staff helped to prepare local youth for future
success through practical application of the 21st century learning skills
such as teamwork, creativity, critical thinking and problem-solving.
Eighty-four Brainerd elementary students joined over 77,000 students nationwide in
tackling exciting hands-on STEM challenges at the Camp Invention program.
The science, technology, engineering, and math concepts that they learned
were used to solve a series of real-world problems that required innovative
solutions. I especially want to thank the adult and youth staff and the
students in Brainerd for the exceptional creativity and inventiveness that
they displayed throughout the week.
