Camp Invention, a math and science day camp for students entering grades one through six, will again be held at Missouri University of Science and Technology this summer.

Camp Invention is a nationwide day camp where children participate in hands-on activities to learn more about science, math, history and the arts. The children use their imaginations and develop problem solving skills in various workshops such as “I Can Invent: Fantasy Inventions and Complicated Machines” and “Solve It: The Missing Inventor’s Log.”

Camp Invention’s curriculum has been carefully designed and tested to ensure that children are laughing and creating, all while learning about sound scientific principles. The camp was created by the National Inventors Hall of Fame with support from the United States Patent and Trademark Office.

Two sessions of Camp Invention will be offered this summer at Missouri S&T. The Discover Program will be June 1-5 and the Explore Program is scheduled for July 13-17. Students will be on campus from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. daily.

For those who register prior to May 27, the cost is $200 for one child per session. Discounts are available to Missouri S&T faculty and staff, and to those who register more than one child.
For more information, go to or contact Diane Hagni of S&T’s Center for Pre-College Programs,
