Unmask your child’s creativity this summer in Camp Invention’s new program, Supercharged, where children build confidence, learn to collaborate and transform their wild imaginations into epic creations.

The program will feature hands-on activities to promote science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) learning; building resourcefulness and problem-solving skills; and encourages entrepreneurship.

Campers will learn creative problem-solving skills while coding and programming futuristic robots, uncovering ancient fossils, designing high-tech superhero gadgets and exploring radio frequencies.

Liberty Elementary School teacher and MakerSpace facilitator Mrs. Tamika Terry will lead this action-packed program featuring exhilarating, hands-on STEM activities teaching campers to question, explore, break through obstacles and embrace failure!

Each day in this five-day long camp will focus on four modules and their coordinating projects:

CREATIVE PROBLEM SOLVING

Children team up to rebuild ships and design underwater equipment in Deep Sea Mystery.

STEM APPLICATION

In DIY Orbot, participants explore circuit boards, motors and gears as they design a remote-control bot to take on obstacles from sports to dance.

INNOVATION

Children collaborate with inventor superheroes and take on the role of engineers, fabricators and innovators to conquer villains in Innovation Force.

CONFIDENCE

Kids become successful entrepreneurs in Farm Tech, as they code bots to turn a polluted wasteland into a money-making machine and create devices to save animals.

There is an opportunity for students in grade 7-9 to take part in the camp’s Leaders-in-Training (LIT) program. LITs will gain mentoring and collaboration skills while helping guide campers throughout the week!

Making spirits bright: 29 families served at toy drive

Nothing embodies the holiday spirit at Liberty Elementary School more than seeing children get toys that may be the only gifts they receive this winter.

As it does each year, the teachers and staff at Liberty are stepping forward, one toy at a time, to make sure each child in need has at least one toy to unwrap.

During its holiday toy drive on Dec. 4, the teachers and staff at Liberty Elementary School helped put new quality toys under the tree for nearly 30 families.

The elementary school will continue to collect new and unwrapped toys for children through Dec. 14.  Toys can be left with a child’s teacher or at the main office of the elementary school.

Elementary students learn the basics of coding

When many of us were growing up, the only language we learned at school was a foreign one. Now, students are also learning a digital language: Code.

Liberty Elementary School students are learning the basics of coding through a 21st century curriculum and online tools such as Swift Playgrounds, an iPad app that teaches the fundamentals of coding in a way so simple even the youngest of learners can grasp it.

Third-grade students from Mrs. Houghtaling’s class went quiet as they entered directional commands into form a complete sentence in Code. Pretty soon, they had no problem instructing Byte (the app’s animated character) using basic coding commands.  Cheers erupted – as well as a request to keep playing the app during recess!

A third grade student sitting at his desk turns his face and iPad toward the camera. The ipad is loading an app. The screen reads "Learn to Code."Screenshot of an app on a SmartBoard. On the left, there is code. On the right, there is an animated character who is walking on a path directed by the code.
