Minster Elementary was the place to go for science, technology, engineering, and mathematics for Camp Invention. Camp Invention is a nationally recognized camp program that teaches kids about all kinds of things, like collaboration and entrepreneurship.

It’s a good way to keep kids focused on learning, even in the summer. "It's a great time to get the kids back in that school kind of routine, middle of July, I know my own kids wouldn't admit this, but but by the end of July, they're kind of ready for that school kind of routine again," said Wendi Moorman, Camp Director and Gifted Coordinator for Mercer County Schools.  "It's a big commitment - they have given a week of their summer to come to school, basically, from 8:30 to 3 every day."

"My favorite part has probably been the duct tape class - we had to make prototypes of a new invention starting from like helmets, velcro, buckles, things like that," said Caleb Wendel, a 6th grader at St. Henry. "It's just really fun because you get a play around with duct tape."

"My favorite part was probably learning how to own your own business and start it up, it was called Duct Tape Billionaire," said Morgan Ketner, 6th grader at Minster. "I kind of like making stuff my own and how when you start a business, it's your own, so you don't have anyone to tell you what's wrong or right."

Directors say that 79 students from 3rd to 6th grade attended the camp.
