Indian Spring develops student leaders
Three summer camps are helping develop student leaders at Indian Spring Middle School for the upcoming school year.
Two of the camps, Bulldog Ambassadors and Camp Cameron, are providing students multiple outdoor activities that many of them have never experienced. Imbedded in the activities are opportunities to boost self-confidence, forge new friendships and develop leadership skills. The headquarters for the Bulldog Ambassadors camp is the Waco Regional Tennis and Fitness Center. Camp Cameron students meet each morning at the Cameron Park Clubhouse.
The other camp, Zero Robotics, was held on the school campus in June. Provided through a partnership between MIT Space Systems, Texas A&M University and NASA, this camp helped sharpen the students' science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) skills. Working as a team, the students learned how to program experimental satellites to hover around and take photographs of asteroids. Those students will get to visit NASA in August as a result of their success in the program.
