As leaders in STEM education, we understand the challenges of managing school closures like those occurring in response to COVID-19. With these challenges in mind, we’re providing at-home learning resources to help turn these uncertain times into innovative learning opportunities.
As we all look forward to summer, please refer to our Preparedness Plan for this year’s all-new Camp Invention® program.
STEM Education Programs for All Ages and Communities
Join us in our mission to spread lifelong learning and discovery.
Invention is much more than a eureka moment. Invention is a process that requires collaboration, hands-on application of STEM, creative problem solving, entrepreneurship and an understanding that moments of failure are necessary on the path to success.
Our Innovation Ecosystem — a network of programs influenced by inventors — provides an authentic, hands-on opportunity to experience the invention process first hand. Led by local, certified educators, our programs offer equal access to STEM education while positioning inventors as role models, helping to reduce disparities in STEM fields and build a more innovative future.

We believe it’s never too early to encourage a child’s natural curiosity by introducing exciting ideas and activities.
Get your young inventor ready to go on a scavenger hunt for fun recyclables around the house! These shareable items are used at your program for prototyping throughout the week. You’ll also need to prepare a lunch, drink and snack each day (unless notified otherwise), and complete any medication information on the below form for the first day.
“My son had a great time (better than he expected). He loves sports camps so wasn't sure about a learning camp. But he loved it. Trying to convince his younger sister to go next year!!!”
“My twin girls learned so much at camp. It literally changed how they play with their toys at home and even their perception of the world has changed. Thank you!”
“We also had the opportunity to have an Inductee to the National Inventors Hall of Fame come visit and the kids LOVED it! Dr. Iver Anderson was great with the kids, worked with them on projects, and was a highlight for our week.”
“My son had a wonderful experience. He was very nervous when I dropped him off and when I picked him up the first day he said, "That rocked! I can't wait for tomorrow!" At the conclusion of camp, he was already planning to go again next year.”
“My daughter was very nervous to go; she tends to be introverted in crowds. She couldn't wait to go back the next day. And didn't want it to end. She can't wait until next year!”
