How Educators Can Reinvent Their Summer Learning Strategies

Informed by over 30 years of providing innovative STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) education to millions of students across the country, the National Inventors Hall of Fame® (NIHF) knows that each school district has its own summer learning needs.

That’s why we have designed K-6 summer learning programs that adapt to your needs. Our solutions flex to fit your school’s unique hour and academic subject requirements, and they can work as stand-alone programs or complement your larger summer learning strategy.

Thousands of districts nationwide continue to partner with NIHF for customized summer learning programs that offer:
