Camp Invention comes to Our Lady of Fatima

The national education program Camp Invention is coming to Our Lady of Fatima, 229 Danbury Road, the week of Aug. 4-8.

Camp Invention fosters innovative thinking and the spirit of innovation by encouraging kids to solve real world problems using science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

The week-long STEM day camp is for students entering first through sixth grade.

Camp Invention has a new curriculum — “Morphed!” — that is designed to immerse students in hands-on activities like:

  • Building original prototypes;
  • Creating personalized motor-powered vehicles;
  • Disassembling electronics to build an insect-themed pinball machine.

Camp Invention was founded by National Inventors Hall of Fame inductees.
