A nationally recognized science, technology, engineering and mathematics summer program is coming to Cuyuna Range Elementary School.
Camp Invention, which encourages creativity and problem solving through STEM learning, is coming to CRES for a week in June.
Students entering grades 1-6 are eligible for the camp, which runs from June 13-17.
The camp features hands-on problem solving using STEM programs. It provides an opportunity for young students to exercise their creativity and use their imagination in ways they don't normally get to in the classroom, according to a news release. They learn and develop new skills as they build prototypes, take things apart and explore different types of technology.
This year's camp curriculum, Epic, is inspired by some of the country's most brilliant minds including experienced educators, Inductees of the National Inventors Hall of Fame and developed in partnership with the United States Patent and Trademark Office, according to a news release.
Epic features hands-on modules like CrickoBot, where campers construct and personalize a do- it-yourself solar-powered cricket and a unique habitat; Epic Park, where campers work in teams to design an eco-adventure park; I Can Invent: Maker Studio, where campers brainstorm product ideas and build original prototypes using real tools and components found in everyday devices; and The Lab: Where Pigs Fly, where children can discover the science of slime, demolition, electronic sound, giant squid and coding.
Camp Invention serves more than 94,000 students every year through nearly 1,400 camps across the nation. Camp Invention is supported by the United States Patent and Trademark Offices and is a product of the National Inventors Hall of Fame.
