Four Reasons to Partner with NIHF for Summer Learning and Enrichment

As your school district makes its summer learning and enrichment plans, the National Inventors Hall of Fame® is ready to help you make the most of your ESSER funding.

With over 30 years of experience developing engaging educational curricula, NIHF has provided millions of students with valuable social-emotional learning (SEL) experiences through collaborative, hands-on activities.

From Camp Invention®, our flexible K-6 summer program, to our individual student STEM Kits, all NIHF programming qualifies for ESSER and Title I funding and is designed to easily adapt to meet your district’s unique needs.

Those who partner with NIHF to aid in their summer programming can expect:

 

1. Dedicated Support

NIHF provides the complete program curriculum, materials from our on-site warehouse, and professional development and even grant proposal support. Teachers gain experience and confidence in teaching STEM subjects and practice an open-ended, student-led instruction style they can easily transfer to their classrooms.

 

2. Flexible Implementation

The flexible nature of our programming allows for our curriculum to complement an existing summer learning plan, or act as a stand-alone experience to combat learning loss and provide essential SEL experiences. Because of this, our programming’s curricula hours can be completely customized to fit your needs.

 

3. Standards-Aligned and Funding-Qualified Options

NIHF’s education programs are aligned with national and state education standards and quality for ARP/ESSER, Title I, Title II, Title III, Title IV, 21st Century Community Learning Centers, Migrant Education and Early Learning Challenge funding, as well as state and local district resource funding. For over 30 years we have helped school districts across the country apply for funding opportunities to run their programs. Your dedicated NIHF representative can both help you with this process and provide additional national and state alignment information.

 

4. An Immediate Impact

NIHF’s summer solutions spark joy in both teaching and learning. Designed for hands-on engagement and open-ended exploration, the programming encourages children’s natural curiosity and creativity while empowering both students and teachers to joyfully experiment, innovate and build confidence. Our education programs reinvigorate this confidence and joy, reminding teachers why they pursued their calling and assuring children that they are capable and worthy learners.
