Fourth-grade students at Parkway Elementary School in the East Meadow School District put together their own Kid EdCamp on June 12 as part of an interactive experience designed to recognize the strengths and successes of all students. The practice is intended to foster community, collaboration and a growth mindset while also empowering them to become leaders.

Topics from the fourth-grade presentations included karate, creating squishies, slime and origami, as well as Kahoot quizzes on Harry Potter, dinosaurs and science.

Fifth-grade students led a Kid EdCamp on June 7. In both grades, students who were not leading sessions were able to participate and interact with their peer instructors. The sessions were broken down into three 20-minute segments where students could choose which topics they would like to attend.
