Irmo, South Carolina - PAGE Five hosted its Second Annual Summer Camp Expo on Wednesday, February 19 at CrossRoads Intermediate School. “The PAGE Five Summer Camp 2020 Expo was designed to offer a ‘one-stop-shopping’ experience for District Five parents,” said PAGE Five President Barb Waldman, “with an emphasis on enrichment programs for G&T [gifted and talented] students while including a wide variety of programs for all students from 4K to twelfth graders.”
Participating organizations included Duke University, Chapin Theatre Company, Firefly Toys & Games, Irmo Theatre Company, IT-oLogy, Irmo Chapin Recreation Commission, Legacy Martial Arts, PAGE Five Science Club, Palmetto Animal Assisted Life Services, South Carolina Governors School for Arts and Humanities, South Carolina Governors School for Science and Math, Sylvan Learning Center of Irmo, Tri-District Art Consortium, and Virginia Tech. “The expo provided a great deal of useful information,” said Devaris Davis. “I found the collegiate offerings particularly beneficial for showcasing options for my middle-school son who is interested in the STEM [science, technology, engineering, and math] fields.”
Some of the program topics participating organizations showcased were architecture, math, science, engineering, pharmacy, creative writing, theatre, dance, visual arts, IT, aerospace, 3D printing, book art, entrepreneurship, chemistry, and physical fitness.
Due to weather conditions, explained Waldman, PAGE Five postponed this event by two weeks. “Even with the necessary rescheduling of the event, we had a tremendous turnout and plan to expand the event next year.”
