Oasis Charter Elementary School in Cape Coral to host Camp Invention this June 12-16

May 12, 2017
Cape Coral Daily Breeze

Camp Invention, a nationally recognized, nonprofit summer enrichment camp program, is coming to Oasis Charter Elementary School in Cape Coral the week of June 12-16.

Camp Invention is a program of the National Inventors Hall of Fame, a nonprofit organization dedicated to recognizing inventors and invention, promoting creativity and advancing the spirit of innovation and entrepreneurship and supported by the United States Patent and Trade-mark Office.

What makes this camp unique is that the curriculum is inspired by some of the nation's most brilliant minds the Inductees of the National Inventors Hall of Fame.

For students entering kindergarten through sixth grade, Camp Invention is a weeklong adventure that turns the summer from ordinary to extraordinary through hands-on problem solving, collaboration and the use of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).

Participants can exercise their creativity and use their imagination, all while learning and developing new skills they typically don't get to use in the classroom. Children are empowered to have big ideas while they take on challenges that inspire them to question, brainstorm, work as a team and build amazing invention prototypes.

This year's fresh, action-packed Camp Invention curriculum features several hands-on modules:

* Duct Tape Billionaire: Campers design duct tape products they can market and sell to mock investors;

* Have a Blast: Children build high-tech bubble blasters and compete as a team in friendly air battles that use physics to boost their advantage;

* Mission Space Makers: Teams hatch eggs, sprout living plants and grow crystal trees, all while on a mission to locate and prepare a new planet for human habitation; and

* Operation Keep Out: Campers learn to reverse engineer old machines and devices, and use their parts to create the ultimate Spy Gadget Alarm Box.

All local Camp Invention programs are facilitated and taught by certified educators who reside and teach in the community.

Camp Invention serves more than 130,000 students every year and partners with more than 1,400 schools and districts across the nation.

Oasis Charter Elementary School is at 3415 Oasis Blvd., Cape Coral. You can contact the school at 239-542-1577.
