This past week, on March 12, 13 and 15, Laurie Jo Andry’s Biology 2 class participated in Science Camp. Science Camp was an after-school event that lasted two hours each day so fourth, fifth and sixth graders could do some hand-on lessons about science.

“In Science Camp, the Biology students are the camp leaders, and the elementary students are the “campers,” said Andry. “Science Camp was designed to show the kids how much fun science can be.”

It was also to help the elementary and high school students learn something beneficial.

“It was designed so that the elementary students could learn some cool concepts of science,” said Andry, “It was also to benefit to high-school kids. As any teacher will tell you, you really learn something new when you talk to someone else about it.”

Science Camp was a big success for the students. Hopefully Andry and her students will continue their Camp next year so that even more kids can have fun with science.
