Camp Invention will be Hosted at STEAM Academy at Stribling This Summer!!

Many of you ask about additional learning opportunities for your children. If you have not heard, we are hosting Camp Invention in our District this summer. Camp Invention is a fun, innovation and creativity based program that any student in my class will enjoy!


During the program, children will transform the terrain and ecosystem of a distant exoplanet, take risks as future entrepreneurs, blast rockets and rubber chickens, and wire a circuit to create their own Spy Gadget Alarm Box! Check out this video to see highlights:https://youtu.be/9OiFeEzgJwA.


And if you are anything like me, this comment from another parent might be helpful:


“There aren’t many programs that really challenge (my 6-year-old son’s) thinking. He is an introvert who prefers to stay home but he was so excited for camp each day! He made new friends and says he wants to go every year! I’ve never been so happy with a program for bringing this out in my son! Thank you!”
