It was a week-long, science-filled, action-packed Camp Invention the week of June 8 at Loveland Intermediate School (LIS). Tigers and students from neighboring school districts were part of the nation’s premier summer enrichment day camp program. The program is supported by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) and the National Inventors Hall of Fame (NIHF), and served as a weeklong day camp experience for students entering grades one through six. Inventive young minds experienced hands-on problem solving, using science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) in a fun and creative atmosphere.
“This is true inspiration for the next generation of inventors, and we are thrilled to be a part of it” said Steve Federman, LIS science teacher and school camp director. “They come here and build, tear apart, explore and more than anything – have fun while learning. This is a great opportunity for inventive young minds to exercise their creativity and use their imagination in ways they don’t normally get to – especially during the summer months.”
Camp Invention was founded by Inductees of the National Inventors Hall of Fame. Programming is inspired by some of the world’s most well-known inventors and is developed through partnerships with the USPTO and the Collegiate Inventors Competition.
