Draper Science Club travels to Camp Chingachgook
Last week, 45 students from the Draper Middle School Science Club traveled to Camp Chingachgook, a YMCA camp located on Lake George in the Adirondacks. The students participated in a variety of science and team building-related activities.
The young scientists enjoyed exploring life in the lake through the aquatic learning lab, identifying species on a hike of the wetlands and up the mountain, as well as learning about basic animal care techniques. They also completed team building challenges that emphasized communication and collaboration and learned about food waste and composting techniques in a lunch demonstration put on by the Chingachgook staff.
