Camp Invention, a nationally recognized, nonprofit summer enrichment camp program, is coming to Simsbury Public Schools the week of July 9 – July 13.

A program of the National Inventors Hall of Fame, in partnership with the U. S. Patent and Trademark Office, Camp Invention challenges children in grades K-6 to find their inner inventor by learning the process of innovation. Using hands-on activities, Camp Invention promotes science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) learning; builds resourcefulness and problem-solving skills; and encourages entrepreneurship in a fun and engaging environment.

Optibot: Campers will launch into the future with their own Optibot, a small self-driving robot that senses changes in light.

Robotic Pet Vet: Throughout this module, campers nurse their robotic puppy back to health and design and build dog parks as they hammer out ideas for the best park attraction.

Mod My Mini Mansion: Campers will dream up and design their very own futuristic smart home filled with gadgets, LEDs, technology and innovations.

Stick To It: Campers will invent something new every day as they explore what it is like to be a physicist, engineer and entrepreneur. Young innovators will invent, make and craft solutions to real-world challenges by building their own prototypes and discovering that anything is possible.

At the end of the program, each camper will bring home two personalized robots. Learn more about this year’s all-new curriculum—visit
