Shredding event set
TROY — Are your filing cabinets and desk drawers cluttered? On May 14, the Miami County Sanitary Engineering Department will offer free document shredding service for county residents. The event will take place from 8 a.m. to noon under the grandstand at the Miami County Fairgrounds, 650 N. County Road 25-A in Troy.
Shredding will be provided by Crowe Shredding, which guarantees confidential file destruction — documents such as bank statements, tax forms and legal documents will be safely and securely shredded. Shredded documents will be recycled. The event is free for Miami County residents, who may bring up to four file boxes of documents for destruction. Residents recycled over three tons of paper at last year’s shredding event.
For questions about this event, go to Sanitary Engineering at www.miamicountyohio.gov or call the office Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at (937) 440-3488.

STEM Summer Camp to be offered
TROY — “Let it Glide” is the new theme for WACO Aviation Summer Camp 2016.
This one-week intensive day camp, designed for those entering fifth through eighth grade, will focus on science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) used in the field of aviation. “Let It Glide” students will be immersed in hands-on activities as they use the engineering design process to solve real-world aviation problems.
This week’s aviation problem comes in the form of a challenge extended to the campers by NASA. Students will work in teams to complete the steps of the Engineering Design Process, keeping a journal of each step. Students will develop and build a shoebox glider and then work to improve it in order to get the greatest glide slope ratio (ratio of the horizontal distance traveled to the change in height) possible. Using Adobe Connect, students will have a few chances to interact with NASA subject matter experts (SME) in order to gain insights and advice on their projects. Experimenting with thrust, drag, weight and lift will enhance their understanding of flight, and is intended to be applied to their glider design. Finally, the team will prepare a video presentation of their records, data and documentation to be presented to NASA.
Additionally, several aviation specialists will be guests during the course of the week, introducing Aviation Campers to a variety of possible careers in the aviation/aerospace industry. The week will conclude with an introductory flight in a general aviation aircraft. Only 16 openings remain. For questions or to register, call WACO at (937) 335-9226.
