The district once again hosted the nationally recognized “Camp Invention” program from June 25-28 at Bosti Elementary School, as more than 100 students in grades one through six took part in a program of exploration, inspiration and creativity.

Programs such as the “Optibot,” “Robotic Pet Vet,” “Mod My Mini Mansion” and “Stick To It” challenged the campers to think outside the box to solve problems and use the internet to reveal how these devices are connected and controlled.  

On June 28, parents and siblings were invited by program director Lisa Manzo to marvel at the efforts the students put into the innovative projects they had been working on during the week.

Camp Invention is the only nationally recognized, nonprofit elementary enrichment program backed by the National Inventors Hall of Fame. During the past 40 years, and in partnership with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, this program has encouraged nearly two million children, teachers, parents, college students and independent inventors across the country to explore science, technology and their own innate creativity, inventiveness and entrepreneurial spirit.  

The original program was established in 1990 and has since spread to 49 states. The Camp Invention program enhances a child’s ability to learn through teamwork and subject-immersion while cultivating a new appreciation for discovery through fun-filled activities.
