Dear Parents and Residents of Emerson:
Safe and Secure Schools Flyer
Talking to Children About Violence - CIGNA Behavioral Health
In partnership with Invent Now, Emerson Public Schools is pleased to offer the nationally-acclaimed Camp Invention program to children entering grades one through six this summer. This exciting, weeklong adventure in creativity immerses children in imaginative play that reinforces and supplements school-year learning in the subjects of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM). Children will work together to seek innovative solutions to real-world challenges and sharpen critical 21st century learning skills such as teamwork and creative problem solving as they rotate through four modules each day that disguise learning as fun.
In the Problem Solving on Planet ZAK® module, children will crash-land on an alien planet, where they collect important data about its environment to help them design shelters and spacesuits able to survive the planet’s harsh living conditions. Children will explore “green” city design and create an eco-friendly infrastructure by instituting pollution-free water filtration systems, landfills, waste disposal systems, and transportation powered by renewable resources in the Saving Sludge City™ module. In the I Can Invent: Launchitude™ module, children will take apart broken or unused appliances using real tools and re-engineer the gears to invent an awesome Duck Chucking Device! Finally, in the Geo-Games™ module, classic high-energy games will be fused with global fun.
