Up and Away

Sasha Lubbers of Schnellville, 9, looked up through the mist from a water rocket she launched during the STEM Explorers Camp at the Birdseye Branch Library on Tuesday. Director of Jasper-Dubois County Public Library Christine Golden of Holland said one of the biggest lessons for the children was “finding what works and what doesn’t work — trial and error.” The camp was hosted by the Jasper-Dubois County Public Library and funded by a grant from the Dubois County Community Foundation.
