Let’s invent the future today at this summer’s Camp Invention!

St. Mary's School is partnering with the National Inventors Hall of Fame to provide Camp Invention, a unique elementary summer enrichment experience with a science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) focus for children in our community, June 25-29.

An exciting, week-long summer adventure awaits with activities that explore connections between science, technology, engineering and innovation, and sharpen their 21st century skills. A program of the National Inventors Hall of Fame, Camp Invention allows children in grades K-6 to experience real-world problem solving, creative thinking, invention, and teamwork. Local, certified educators lead a week of hands-on activities that fuel children’s confidence in their natural ability to dream and create. Early registration discounts are available so don’t miss out on this exciting opportunity.

In the Fast Forward curriculum, children will participate in four fun-filled modules each day:

Mod My Mini Mansion™
Campers will dream up and design their very own futuristic smart home filled with gadgets, LEDs, technology and innovation! From talking mirrors to toasters that know how to cook their favorite foods, your child will invent and build models of these smart gadgets and gizmos.

Robotic Pet Vet™
Animal shelters are reporting that malfunctioning robotic dogs have been popping up all over town. Hurry and tell your young inventor to grab their vet kit because there’s only one cure for these pups – innovation! Throughout this module, campers diagnose puppy problems and design and build dog parks as they hammer out their ideas for the best dog park attraction.

Campers will launch into the future with their own Optibot – a small self-driving bot that senses changes in light. Exploring the technology behind transportation, children will design the ultimate, futuristic vehicle that might one day be reality!

Stick To It™
Campers will invent something new every day as they explore what it is like to be a physicist, engineer and entrepreneur. Daily challenges inspire campers to bring their own ideas to the table, think big, persevere and get to the heart of what it means to be an inventor. Your young innovator will invent, make and craft solutions to real-world challenges by building their own prototypes and discovering that anything is possible!
