Camp Invention Molding Young Minds in Bangor
Jul 15, 20168:00 PM EDT
It’s been called the nation’s premiere summer enrichment day camp program.
Camp Invention made its way to Bangor this week.
Camp Invention is supported by the United States Patent and Trademark office, as well as the National Inventors Hall of Fame.
Students at the William S. Cohen School are presented with a problem and challenged to find solutions.
They’re asked to design prototypes and think of the best ways to market what they’ve come up with.
“We are hoping that through camp invention for one thing the children can think outside the box, become problems solvers because our world needs to have those active thinkers and be able to also work in a team.” says Barbara Clewley, Co-Director of Camp Invention.
The camp is for first through sixth graders, and can also take students with learning disabilities.
It will return next summer.
