On Saturday, April 8, 2000, several eager
youngsters traveled to Cabell Hall to participate in DUPLO Camp.
The children engaged in several activities. They matched patterns,
made simple machines, built a strong bridge that everyone could crawl through,
and planned, designed and constructed a community. This community
was complete with residential homes, an animal park, dubbed "The Jungle",
a tram system, a store, and a railroad. The morning group built a
device to rescue a kitty that had run up to the top of the bridge.
The afternoon group designed a vehicle to pass an egg, representing sharing
food, from house to house. This activity is sponsored by the Marshall
University Continuing Education Department. Mrs. Linda Hamilton,
MU Mathematics Instructor, teaches the DUPLO Classes.
