Plumas Unified School District offers Camp Invention this summer

Unmask your child’s creativity this summer in the all-new Camp Invention program, Supercharged, where children build 21st-century skills and transform their wild imaginations into epic creations.

Campers entering grades three through six in fall 2019 will code and program futuristic robots, explore radio frequencies and unearth ancient fossils. Local educators will lead these innovative STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math focused) activities that build collaboration and creative problem-solving skills, under the leadership of Camp Director Dr. Lisa Kelly.

Camp Invention is a nonprofit program of the National Inventors Hall of Fame (NIHF). The camp experience is planned by educators with input from NIHF inductees to bring exciting, hands-on, creative learning.

For example, campers will reverse-engineer a remote-controlled robot, and write code instructions for it, increasing in complexity throughout the week. In another learning module, students will use their imaginations to solve scenarios such as being science researchers stranded on a desert island. Working in teams, children will invent island-survival tools and underwater equipment, and navigate their way back home.

Camp Invention combines a stimulating, learning environment, with a fun, supportive atmosphere to create a memorable experience for all participants.

The camp will be held at the Quincy Jr./Sr. High School campus from June 17 to June 21, from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Registration takes place online at invent.org/camp and will cost $255 per camper. Use the code “play15flyer” to receive a $15 discount before May 10.

Early registration discounts are available. Register and find current promotions at invent.org/camp or call (800) 968-4332.
