Camp Invention at West Elementary School Athens, Ohio
As leaders in STEM education, we understand the challenges of managing school closures like those occurring in response to COVID-19. With these challenges in mind, we’re providing at-home learning resources to help turn these uncertain times into innovative learning opportunities. As we all look forward to summer, please refer to our Preparedness Plan for this year’s all-new Camp Invention program.
With this summer’s all-new Camp Invention® program, your child’s creativity will reach new heights!
A nationally acclaimed summer program from the National Inventors Hall of Fame® (NIHF), Camp Invention provides children in grades K-6 with opportunities to collaborate and explore STEM concepts through fun, hands-on challenges designed to build confidence, persistence and creative problem-solving skills. Since 1990, this one-of-a-kind program has been helping children unlock their potential to become creators, innovators and entrepreneurs.
Each year, our education team develops a new, action-packed Camp Invention experience that is directly influenced by world-changing inventors, our NIHF Inductees.
With our 2020 program, Elevate, campers will take on four exciting new challenges.
encourages children to think big and aim high as they launch rockets, experiment with hand-copters and navigate planes through a rainstorm. Plus, they’ll take apart their very own customizable robot to see how it works, and then bring the robot home at the end of the program!
Children learn the value of their creativity in Design Thinking Project™, becoming confident entrepreneurs as they find out how to design, build and sell their own inventions! Through hands-on challenges from real-life inventors, they’ll brainstorm, sketch, prototype, pitch and protect their biggest ideas.
Children team up and take on exciting challenges to protect the planet in Rescue Squad™! They’ll experiment in a new habitat each day, competing in zipline races, building prototypes to help wildlife, conserving electricity, eliminating pollution, playing recycling games and using parachutes to safely transport animals.
Camp Invention Champions™ invites children to get to know the amazing inventors behind their favorite sports while finding inspiration for their own game-changing ideas. They’ll play hover ball games with their friends, create mascots, trade inventor playing cards, and design and build the ultimate sports complex!
Camp Invention will provide your child with an empowering environment and an unforgettable experience. Our activities are led by local educators, and one staff member is in place for every eight children.
