Camp Invention

Camp Invention is a non-profit organization that allows their summer camp to be hosted in different schools around the United States. The organization is backed by the National Inventors Hall of Fame, and is partnered with the United States Patent and Trademark Office. The week long camp is geared toward STEM enrichment, which stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. All of the activities that the students work on during the camp are explored via hands-on, creative problem solving modules.

Camp Invention is designed to reflect the spirit of invention, inspired by the Inductees of the National Inventors Hall of Fame. The camp also provides educators the strategies and environment necessary to nurture a child’s curiosity into big ideas through immersive curricula that encourage creativity, innovation, problem solving, communication and collaboration. The teachers that are running this camp are trying to get students interested in science and technology starting from a young age. This camp is an excellent opportunity to introduce your child to science and technology.

If you are interested in having your child attend Camp Invention, please go to http://www.campinvention.org/ and sign up. You do not have to live in Depew to attend the summer camp. Depew Middle School is only the place where the camp will be held, but any students from any district are welcome to attend.
