HEBRON — The competitive spirit came out this week for about 40 students from Thayer Central Community Schools who just finished third through sixth grades.
The students were enrolled in a two-day science camp on Tuesday and Wednesday. Each day they engaged in four experiments, most of which were turned into competitions so the students could see who could build the fastest or most accurate contraptions.
Co-camp director Derek Niss said the goal was to teach students science is fun.
“That’s the idea,” he said. “Hopefully we can get them engaged in science so they realize it’s not just sitting. Science is something active.”
