Young inventors

July 31, 2013

Underground homes and towns were created last week as students put on their thinking caps to help solve the housing situation in Singapore.

The students learned during Camp Invention about Singapore's population problem and how hard it was to find space for all the residents.

"They are thinking about real world problems," said Beth Rogers, a teacher at Springfield Plains Elementary, explaining the students are also learning about other problems and thinking of ways to solve them. "It is really nice."

The students went to four different modules each day and throughout the week build onto what they have previously learned. They also learn about teamwork.

"It is a skill they will carry the rest of their lives," teacher Jessica Herzog added.

Camp Invention is offered through Clarkston Community Education. For more information visit ~WAR
