Camp Invention® is coming to our community this summer!
We are excited to offer Camp Invention®, the country’s leading science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) program, encouraging creative problem solving, teamwork, entrepreneurship and curiosity in children from kindergarten through sixth grade. In addition, many students who have aged out of the program participate as Leaders-in-Training (LITs) to develop early leadership skills. LITs receive formal training and are mentored by high school-aged Camp Invention Leadership Interns.
After attending Camp Invention for just one week, research from the Institute for Learning Innovation found that participants experienced significant short- and long-term improvements in creativity, STEM interest and problem-solving skills.
Unfortunately, many parents in our community who want to provide this opportunity for their children cannot afford the registration fee.
You can change this!
Your kind donation will provide scholarships for disadvantaged children, so they too can participate in this extraordinary enrichment experience.
Thanks to your generosity, our students will experience a week filled with hands-on opportunities to explore, invent and learn from world-changing inventors.
As one of more than 1,800 schools and districts nationwide offering Camp Invention in 2019, your support will provide local children an experience that:
- Leads children through the process of invention and teaches them that failure is a necessary point on the path to success.
- Presents children with real-world challenges that ignite creativity, inspire collaboration and encourage entrepreneurship.
- Introduces new, cutting-edge curriculum each year to ensure participants have an engaging and memorable experience.
- Exposes children to world-changing inventors in a relatable and fun way by engaging them with a superhero storyline.
- Instills the value of Intellectual Property and the roles that patents, trademarks and copyrights play in modern business.
- Allows middle school students to gain valuable leadership experience through our Leaders-in-Training program.
- Provides local educators with professional development opportunities.
