CANTON – A weeklong day camp encouraging fun problem-solving using science, technology, engineering, and mathematics for students entering grades 1-6 is set for July 21 to 25 at SUNY Canton.

Camp Invention, a national program fostering innovative thinking for $220 per child, will be in the Richard W. Miller Campus Center.

Camp Invention was founded by inductees of the National Inventors Hall of Fame. Programs are developed with the United States Patent and Trademark Office and finalists of the Collegiate Inventors Competition.

Camp Invention’s new curriculum for 2014, "Morphed!", immerses students in hands-on activities, such as building prototypes, creating a motor-powered vehicle, and disassembling electronics to build an insect-themed pinball machine. Local programs are taught by educators who live and teach in those communities.
