The Vernon-Verona-Sherrill school district is hosting a summer invention camp this week.  The roughly hundred kids in the program are getting the opportunity to get hands on learning in STEM subjects with this camp.  That includes building pin ball machines out of card board and exploring the five senses and yes, the kids love it.

"You can share an idea instead of just sticking with your one idea and you can split up ideas and share with them, so you get a better idea than just your idea," said Elizabeth Schieferstine.

"You can learn lots of stuff from it, so like when you're older you might want to be an engineer, so you might want to do that," said Jack Bailey.

Teachers at the camp say it’s a great way to help build kids imaginations when it comes to learning about STEM subjects.
