Camp Invention’s Geo-Quest program offered at NIU

The Camp Invention summer program is returning to Northern Illinois University.

Camp Invention is a weeklong summer day program for children entering grades one through six, created in partnership with the National Inventors Hall of Fame and the United States Patent and Trademark Office. The program engages children to discover their own innate creativity and inventiveness through hands-on Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) content.

NIU will host Camp Invention June 17 through June 21. This year’s program is Geo-Quest, which features Cache Dash where students join in an international expedition, navigating their way to treasure-filled caches containing global challenges presented by youth around the world.

Each day children rotate through integrated modules that employ creative thinking to solve real-world challenges. Children learn vital life skills such as problem solving and teamwork through imaginative play.

Even if a child has participated in Camp Invention in the past, he or she will benefit from brand new adventures throughout the week.
