The Mendon Area Community Council (MACC) has just completed its first week of Science and Recreation Camp.
MACC sponsored the first of three such camps June 24-28 at Mendon Elementary School. Attendees spent the week engineering and testing their own skimmer design while learning about the laws of motion, friction, drag, and streamlining.
Pictured in the accompanying photos are campers who demonstrated their final design in front of invited guests during the Skimmer Regatta.
Many thanks to local engineer, Marty Davenport, who assisted science teacher, Carol Higgins, in the program. Contact Higgins at (269) 496-7711 to sign up elementary-aged children for future camps that will be held July 15-19 and August 12-16 in Mendon.
