Walk to End Epilepsy in Lincoln Assisted by Wayne State College

Wayne State College students would like to invite everyone to the Walk to End Epilepsy sponsored by the newly formed Nebraska Chapter of the Epilepsy Foundation on May 18 at 8 a.m. The walk will start at the Lincoln Stars Arena (Icehouse) at 1880 Transformation Drive in Lincoln.

The Walk to End Epilepsy is a grassroots community and fundraising event that provides people the opportunity to speak up about epilepsy, to learn more and connect with others affected by epilepsy at a fun-filled event. There is a non-competitive 5K Walk complete with fun activities for all ages.

Wayne State College students of Dr. Dendinger’s Managerial Communications class have been hard at work creating a communications plan to increase statewide training for teachers, nurses, and first responders in the recognition and response to seizures.

The Epilepsy Foundation reports epilepsy happens to 2.5 to 3 million people in the United States. One in 26 of those diagnosed will experience recurring seizures. “Knowing how to respond and assist a person experiencing a seizure could reduce the likelihood of an injury and might even save their life.” said Dendinger. Students in the class chose to put this project together to raise awareness for a cause they said they have become passionate about.

Learn more about the Walk to End Epilepsy, please check out the Nebraska Chapter of the Epilepsy Foundation on Facebook or call Rose Opbroek, Executive Director, at 402-660-6193.

Explore ideas for a Service-Learning project for your organization, please contact Lisa Nelson, Director of Service-Learning, at: linelso1@wsc.edu or (402) 375-7182.

Camp Invention in Wayne

Camp Invention®, a nationally recognized, nonprofit summer enrichment camp program, is coming to Wayne Jr Sr High School the week of June 10 – June 14, 2019.

A program of the National Inventors Hall of Fame (NIHF), in partnership with the United States Patent and Trademark Office, Camp Invention challenges children in Grades K-6 to find their “inner inventor” by learning the process of innovation. Using hands-on activities, Camp Invention promotes science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) learning; builds confidence, leadership, perseverance, resourcefulness and problem-solving skills; and encourages entrepreneurship — in a fun and engaging environment.

* Innovation Force®: Campers team up with the Innovation Force (NIHF Inductees as superheroes) to battle the evil Plagiarizer, a supervillain who is out to steal the world’s greatest ideas. As children create a device to retrieve the stolen ideas, they learn about the importance of intellectual property and the U.S. patent system.
* Deep Sea Mystery™: The children embark on a research adventure at sea to dig up fossils. Using lessons and advice from NIHF Inductees, they invent island-survival tools and underwater equipment.
* Farm Tech™: Campers are put in charge of managing their own farm as they learn the basics of running a business. With the assistance of the Bot-ANN-E robot, they learn fundamental coding techniques to maximize their time and profits. Children also are introduced to DNA syntheses, where they perform their own mock experiment to check the health of their newly purchased cattle.
* DIY Orbot™: The children will explore frequency, circuit boards, motors and gears as they use real tools to reverse engineer a remote-control robot. Throughout the week, campers will adapt their DIY Orbot to perform increasingly challenging tasks.
