At the National Inventors Hall of Fame® (NIHF) part of our mission is to make STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) education accessible to as many children as possible. To further this goal, we are excited to announce that this summer, we are offering an Extended Day option at more Camp Invention® sites than ever before!
What is Extended Day?
Camp Invention sites offering an Extended Day program provide additional hours in the morning and afternoon to meet the needs of working parents. Additional features for these sites include:
- Convenient Hours – These programs typically run from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and better align with the schedules of busy families.
- Even More Innovation– Each day features additional innovative activities that encourage them to use their imaginations and build creative thinking skills.
- Momentum– Extended Day builds on the lessons of the traditional program, and children are excited to both kick-start and complete each day with even more engaging, hands-on activities.

Thanks to our expert team of educators, each year we are able to develop an entirely new curriculum for our flagship summer STEM experience, Camp Invention. New for 2020 is our brand-new program, Elevate! Throughout their time at camp, children will take apart a customizable robot, explore the principles of flight, develop confidence by transforming their ideas into products, protect the Earth’s ecosystems by learning how to eliminate pollution and create their very own sports complex by drawing inspiration from world-changing inventors — our NIHF Inductees.
