District 11 Community Education to host Camp Invention program

Invent Now, Inc., a non-profit organization dedicated to honoring and fostering invention and creativity, will bring its Camp Invention summer program to Anoka Middle School for the Arts-Fred Moore Campus for 2013.

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.

For a fifth year, Anoka Hennepin District 11 Community Education is hosting Camp Invention during the week of June 17-21.

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.

Each day children rotate through integrated modules that employ creative thinking to solve real-world challenges.

Children learn vital life skills such as problem solving and teamwork through imaginative play.

The Camp Invention program engages children to discover their own innate creativity and inventiveness through hands-on science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) content, according to Susan Clarke, regional consultant.
