Student attends camp thanks to Open Windows for Girls


WADDINGTON - Hazel Kent, a student at Madrid-Waddington Central School, received a campership from the SLC AAUW Open Windows for Girls to attend Camp Invention held in July at SUNY Canton.

Camp Invention, a program of Invent Now, is a day camp where elementary students are immersed in a week-long adventure of creative problem solving.

The camp provides participants with the opportunity to help cultivate the ideas critical to science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) by encouraging exploration and curiosity through innovative projects and collaborative hands-on activities.

Ronald J. Tavernier, Jr., assistant professor of biology at SUNY Canton and Mellisa Kirby, a faculty member at Madrid-Waddington Central School are the site organizers for this summer.

AAUW values the importance of supporting girls in science, technology, and math (STEM) as part of their mission to break through barriers for women and girls. Its research, policy and nationwide programs encourage members to work from their own communities to ensure that they reach equity in these important fields.
