STEM Camp at Jacksonville High School
Administrators and teachers at Jacksonville High School are stressing the importance of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math by hosting a summer STEM camp. The camp is free for rising 8th, 9th, and 10th graders at JHS.
The students are working with STEM subject teachers to learn through fun activities and experiments. We caught up with the group today as they collected water samples to analyze from the creek at the Chief Ladiga Trail.
Administrators said the purpose was to get students thinking about the future while realizing that learning can be fun.
Students we spoke with said they will definitely do this again and hope that others can also come along for the fun.
The STEM camp participants are also provided free breakfast and lunch each day. Administrators hope to make this an annual event each summer.
