Find the Joy of Teaching at Camp Invention

For over 30 years, the National Inventors Hall of Fame® (NIHF) has partnered with educators across the country to offer Camp Invention®, our K-6 STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) summer program.

NIHF provides teachers with everything they need to easily implement each year’s curriculum, and many educators who get involved with Camp Invention look forward to returning year after year because they enjoy the difference it makes in the lives of their students.

This summer’s program offers even more teacher benefits, including:

  • Stipends payable through direct deposit
  • A turnkey curriculum that’s far easier to implement compared to traditional summer school
  • Transferable teaching strategies for creating immersive STEM experiences in any classroom environment
  • An enjoyable way to earn CEUs*


Why educators like you recommend teaching at Camp Invention

Over the past few months, we’ve received a number of video testimonials from educators across the country sharing why they love being a Camp Invention Instructor or Director. Below are a few of our favorites:

“Camp Invention can really help kids find the joy in learning again, where some of that might have fallen away with all the upheaval of this past school year.” Megan Lehman, Third-Grade Teacher

“I would encourage any staff member, even if you don’t have a science background. The program itself is pretty much spelled out for you from Day One. So even if you’re a little bit nervous, you have a curriculum that guides you through, day by day, class by class, and [can] even supplement by grade level.” Craig McDonald, Fifth-Grade Teacher

“Camp Invention was the best summer program I have ever been involved in. I can’t say enough good things about it. I would rank them No. 1 on my list of businesses that I have worked with.” Stacy Smith, Gifted & Talented Coordinator

“As a Camp Invention Director, I would like to encourage you if you’ve been given the opportunity to become an Instructor for Camp Invention, do it … just do it and you won’t regret it.” Katrina Goodwin, STEM Lab Teacher
