Campers get hands-on learning by dissecting fish
HAYWOOD COUNTY, N.C. (WLOS) —
There's something fishy going on at one summer camp.
Haywood County kids dissected fish while at a STEM camp focusing on science, technology, engineering and math.
During the AIG camp, rising fifth-graders compared and contrasted different species. They look at the nervous, digestive, circulatory and respiratory systems.
Students said the hands-on activities make learning much more fun.
"We had a group that found a stomach that was big and it was full, and there was actually a worm inside," camper Kenna explained. "So, that was something we had never seen before."
Thirty-nine kids participated in the three-day camp.
This is the second year for the AIG summer program. It's sponsored by Haywood County Schools.
