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.
