Camp Invention LogoAnnouncing 2013 CAMP INVENTION - GEO-QUEST!

In partnership with Invent Now, Forest City-Dunbar Elementary is pleased to offer the nationally-acclaimed Camp Invention program to children entering grades one through six this summer. This exciting, week-long adventure in creativity immerses children in imaginative play that reinforces and supplements school-year learning in the subjects of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM). Children will work together to seek innovative solutions to real-world challenges and sharpen critical 21st century learning skills such as teamwork and creative problem solving as they rotate through four modules each day that disguise learning as fun.
 
This exciting week begins on June 17, 2013, when Kathy Coldren will direct the Camp Invention Geo-Quest program at Forest City-Dunbar Elementary.  Working in teams, children become expedition trainees, navigating their way to special treasure-filled caches and creating solutions to challenges posed by youth from around the world. They will be embarking on a global adventure, uncovering hidden messages from the Earth investigating several extreme natural wonders of the world, and building a device to launch international ducks back home.
 
Local educators will facilitate program modules, and enthusiastic high school and college students will serve as Leadership Interns – ensuring that one staff member is in place for every eight children.
