Camp Invention Returns to General McLane

EDINBORO, PA (February 27, 2018) – The nationally-acclaimed Camp Invention program is returning once again to General McLane School District during the summer months.

Camp Invention is for students in grades 1-6 throughout all of Erie County. The program takes place at James W. Parker Middle School June 11-15, 2018.

The program is offered by Invent Now and sponsored by the United States Patent and Trademark Office. This weeklong summer program is an opportunity for both elementary and middle school students to reinvent themselves in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). Campers will work in teams as they rotate between four fun thematic modules.

This is the fifth year for the elementary camp within the District. The program runs from 8:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Within this year’s Fast Forward program, students will have the opportunity to create their own Optibot, a small self-driving bot that senses change in light and robotic pet pet, design a futuristic smart home, complete in a new challenge each day and practice teamwork, cooperation, and coordination skills during fun, energetic games.

The program costs $225. Camp Invention participants save $25 if they register by March 23 and $15 if they register between March 24 and May 4. Installment plans are also available.
