Bloomfield kids find ice cream makes for cool science

Bloomfield kids got some hands on science experience on Tuesday.

The Davis County Extension Office's 4-H program is holding its STEM camps this week.

The camps emphasize science, technology, engineering and math learning.

The kids conducted a variety of experiments from cleaning a penny with taco sauce, to making home-made ice cream in a bag.

Extension Program Director Stephanie Knox said many of the students were well prepared for science learning.

"I was impressed with a lot of them, some of them knew a whole lot, some of them learned a whole lot. I learned a few things, it was good," Knox said

The camps run the rest of the week.

The topics including engineering aid drop packages and the always popular dinosaurs.

Knox says that attendance has been great.

That means the program can continue next summer.
