Camp Invention, an educational summer day-camp program, is coming to Richmond Hill Middle School from Monday-Friday.
The weeklong day camp experience is for students entering grades 1-6 and focuses on science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
Camp Invention’s curriculum for 2014, called “Morphed!,” immerses students in hands-on activities, such as building original prototypes, creating a personalized motor-powered vehicle and disassembling electronics to build an insect-themed pinball machine.
Local programs are facilitated and taught by educators who reside and teach in those communities.
“Camp Invention is proud to inspire and challenge our next generation of innovators through this nationally acclaimed educational program,” said Michael Oister, CEO of Invent Now, the organization responsible for organizing more than 1,200 Camp Invention day camps throughout the U.S.
“During the past 20 years, we have helped to ignite a passion for creativity and invention in more than 900,000 children, while leaving them with great camp memories and lifelong friendships.”
