Sharyland Independent School District students investigated a mock crime scene during a Summer Gifted Academy this week for students in the gifted and talented programs at their schools. Students also learned about aerodynamics, architecture and experimented with bubbles. The purpose of the camp was to get students interested in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
Gail Roman, a teacher that designed the program this year, said it was little difficult and different, letting the students loose a bit and letting them make a bit of a mess on Tuesday when her students played with bubbles.
In previous years, the district had people from out of the district come in and direct the program. This year, she coordinated the program, receiving help from a couple of other teachers. She said it was more like what she was to from when she taught in Ohio.
