Local students improve problem-solving skills at Susquehanna University

SELINSGROVE — Rachel Garrett, of Jersey Shore, and Payton Hammaker, of Williamsport, were among a select group of students who participated in Susquehanna University’s I-Engineer camp for high school students.

In the weeklong residential program, students improved their problem-solving skills by working on challenging, hands-on projects. Faculty helped students think analytically and look beyond the obvious while learning more about astronomy, physics, math and team-building psychology. Participants worked individually and in teams on a variety of fun, practical and interactive activities.

Garrett is a student at Jersey Shore Area High School, class of 2020, and is the daughter of John and Pam Garrett.

Hammaker is a student at Williamsport Area High School, class of 2020, and is the son of Jerry Hammaker, of Williamsport, and Kristi Rosenbaum Hammaker, of South Williamsport.
