Students use STEM to bust myths at local camp

Eau Claire (WQOW) – Some students in Eau Claire busted myths while using STEM processes.

The Mythbusters Stem+ Camp at St. Mark Lutheran School, taught students how to use science, technology, engineering and math to bust popular myths.

Organizers told News 18 they’re testing myths such as the fairness of flipping a coin, or even "holding on for dear life", many myths are things kids may see in movies. They also said the camp teaches students life skills, in hopes they will use what they learn in the future.

"First of all we want it to be fun, we want it to be engaging, but also too, to kind of give them a little bit of an idea so that if they’re looking forward toward their futures, things that they might want to do with their future," said camp organizer Kristin Knickelbein. "Maybe they have an interest in one of the STEM fields, and so, they get a chance to dabble."

This is St. Mark’s second STEM+ camp, which runs through Friday. Knickelbein said they hope to continue with the camps. If you’d like to know more about the STEM camp, click here, or here.
