Sparta Holds ‘STEMKAMP’ to Help Military Kids Learn Science

The Sparta Area School District has partnered with the Department of Defense to host a STEM camp for students in military-connected schools, WLAX-TV reports.

Sparta is the only school district in the state taking part in the STEMKAMP program, which is funded by the military and offered to 10 schools across the country.

“Military kids move every two to three years, and so there’s a lot of gaps in their education, Superintendent Dr. Amy Van Deuren told the TV station. “Sometimes they miss out on some of the fun because they’re moving.”
