Camp Invention returns to Maple Grove

It has been announced that the Camp Invention summer program is returning to Cedar Island Elementary School this summer. Camp Invention is a week-long summer day program for children entering grades one through six, created in partnership with the National Inventors Hall of Fame and the United States Patent and Trademark Office. The program engages children to discover their own innate creativity and inventiveness through hands-on Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) content.

Osseo Area Community Education and Services is hosting Camp Invention during the week of June 24 to 28. This year’s Camp Invention program is GeoQuest, which features the I Can Invent: Launchitude module, where children combine physics and re-engineered household items to create the ultimate Duck Chucking Device. The program is directed by Kelsey Dieterman.

Each day children rotate through integrated modules that employ creative thinking to solve real-world challenges. Children learn vital 21st century life skills such as problem solving and teamwork through imaginative play.

Even if a child has participated in Camp Invention in the past, he or she will benefit from brand new adventures throughout the week.

To register a child for these programs or to learn more about Invent Now programming, visit www.campinvention.org or call 800.968.4332.
