Camp Invention, a nationally-recognized STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) summer camp program, is coming to several Cedar Park and Leander-area schools this summer.
For students entering kindergarten through sixth grade, Camp Invention is a weeklong adventure that turns the summer from ordinary to extraordinary through hands-on problem solving, collaboration, and the use of science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
Inventive young minds can exercise their creativity and use their imagination, all while learning and developing new skills they typically don’t get to use in the classroom.
Children are empowered to have big ideas while they take on challenges that inspire them to question, brainstorm, work as a team and build amazing invention prototypes.
“Parents should send their children to Camp Invention because it encourages children to think, solve and create!” said Tracy M., mother of three campers. “Teamwork is encouraged while individual strengths are fostered. My children gained a deeper love for science and engineering, confidence to try new and innovative ideas, made new friendships, and learned new science vocabulary and concepts.”
All local Camp Invention programs are facilitated and taught by certified educators who reside and teach in the community. Camp Invention serves more than 130,000 students every year and partners with more than 1,400 schools and districts across the nation. The following area schools will host Camp Invention:
* England Elementary School the week of June 13 - June 16, 2017.
