On Centre: Bald Eagle Area | Camp Invention hopes to fuel summer of science fun

May 20, 2014 

Having summer fun might not be rocket science, but Bald Eagle Area has a lot of other fields to offer budding scientists.

The district is taking registrations for its first weeklong STEM Summer Camp to be held July 7-11 at Wingate Elementary School.

Each day, Camp Invention will run from 8 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Certified BEA teachers will lead activities, giving students opportunities to explore various areas of science, technology, engineering and math in what the district calls “a hands-on, safe and fun environment.”

But the discoveries aren’t limited to BEA students. Children from surrounding school districts in Centre, Clearfield and Clinton counties are welcome to register.

The cost is $230. Parents can enroll their children on the Camp Invention website at www.campinvention.org. For more information, contact Tracy Boone, the BEA director of curriculum and instruction, at 355-2900 or tracy.boone@beasd.net.

There she is

Bald Eagle Area High School has crowned new royalty.

Mackenzie Basalla, of Julian, recently became Miss BEA for 2014-15, accepting the title from her predecessor, Kourtney Vermillion, at a ceremony at the high school. Basalla is the daughter of Donald and Kelly Basalla.

The runner-up was Tylor Yarrison, and the second runner-up was Rexine Schrum.
