Camp Invention a Huge Success

On August 14, fifty enthusiastic kids grades 1 through 6 descended on Headwaters Science Center, for five days of creative activities where they learned how to invent things out of common household items. Called Camp Invention, it has become an annual affair at the Center, and really stirs the creative juices in youngsters, and they have a lot of fun doing it!

The Camp Invention program this year consisted of five exciting modules designed to provide a unique opportunity to explore the unknown, tinker with ideas, and satisfy an innate sense of curiosity. Children must tap into their creativity to solve real-world challenges and work as a team, using problem-solving as a portal to discovery. Renowned for the difference it’s making nationwide, this enrichment program provides a safe, creative outlet for children to extend school year learning through fun, hands-on activities that develop important life skills that prepare them for the 21st century.
