The national summer enrichment day camp program Camp Invention is coming to Wilton High School the week of July 6.
The week-long day camp for students entering first through sixth grades fosters innovation and creativity while also building self-esteem, teamwork, persistence and goal-setting skills.
The program promotes science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) as well as outdoor activities as part of its curriculum. Through real-world problem-solving challenges, campers build things, take things apart, explore different types of technology and more.
Camp Invention, sponsored by the Wilton Continuing Education, will be taught by educators of Wilton Public Schools.
This year’s Camp Invention Illuminate™ curriculum will encourage children to explore their inventiveness in the design studio: Illuminate module, investigating circuits and taking on a nature-inspired design challenge.
Children will have a chance to build a prototype from scratch and explore math when they create origami flight models during team-building exercises.
