The program creatively immerses and engages its participants through hands-on activities in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).

Boyce Middle School is hosting Camp Invention July 15-19. This year’s Camp Invention program is Create which features the I Can Invent: Launchitude module, where children use physics and engineering to create a Duck Chucking device using components from everyday objects.

Each day, children rotate through integrated modules that employ creative thinking to solve real-world challenges. Children learn vital 21st century life skills, such as problem solving and teamwork through imaginative exploration.
