Learning Extends Beyond the Classroom
We understand the challenges families and educators are currently facing, and just like great inventors, we must all adapt with creative thinking, ingenuity and optimism.
To help turn these uncertain times into valuable learning opportunities, we invite you to take advantage of the many activities below.
Get creative with NEW, hands-on STEM activities
Our all-new Ready, Set, STEM Handbook is filled with engaging, at-home activities for elementary and middle school-aged kids. Best of all, these brand new activities can be completed as a family, so everyone can learn, imagine and invent together.
Take a Virtual Field Trip
While you’re at home, we can bring our museum to you! Thanks to our partnership with Google Arts & Culture, your family can discover all that our museum has to offer from the comfort of your home. You can also explore these links to tour our exhibits, read about our latest exhibits, and learn more about visionary inventors — our NIHF Inductees.
Explore the History of American Innovation
NIHF is committed to sharing the stories of world-changing inventors — stories of perseverance, ingenuity and overcoming obstacles in challenging times.
Let us help your young innovator learn valuable lessons and discover limitless inspiration.
As many of us adopt social distancing, we invite you to stay connected by sharing your photos/videos of at-home learning. Coming together virtually during this uncertain time encourages strength, inspiration and perseverance. Remember to use hashtag #CampInvention when you share on Facebook and Twitter.
Get Ready for Summer Fun!
This year, summer learning will be more important than ever before. So we intend to keep our Camp Invention® program running nationwide with the help of certified local educators who will provide a safe and fun learning environment.
If you have not yet registered, we encourage you to sign up today! We can’t wait to share our all-new, high-energy 2020 program with your young innovator.
