A group of Tamaqua Elementary School students attended a summer camp called Super Cool Science Experiments, held at their school and run by West Penn Elementary School teacher Michelle Bittner. Using common ingredients found in a kitchen, such as dishwashing detergent, borax, cooking oil, sugar and salt, the students conducted a variety of experiments during the week. The camp is sponsored by the Tamaqua Blue Raider Foundation.
