Camp Invention, a nationally recognized nonprofit summer enrichment camp program, is coming to Coal City Intermediate School and Homer Junior High School the week of June 10 to 14.
A program of the National Inventors Hall of Fame, in partnership with the United States Patent and Trademark Office, Camp Invention challenges children in kindergarten through sixth grade to find their "inner inventor" by learning the process of innovation.
Using hands-on activities, Camp Invention promotes science, technology, engineering and mathematics learning; builds confidence, leadership, perseverance, resourcefulness and problem-solving skills; and encourages entrepreneurship in a fun and engaging environment.
This year's Supercharged curriculum features several video challenges. At the end of the program, each camper will bring home a robot. For information, visit ivent.org/camp.
