UIS Camp Invention Week
Local kids are getting a chance to exercise their minds this summer.
UIS is hosting its camp invention, a week-long program designed to stimulate children's minds.
The camp is a great way for students to take part in real world problem-solving challenges. They can build things, take them apart, and explore different types of technology.
"I think it's fun how we get to kind of invent what we want to, and there are no limits to our imagination," said Kate Feld, Camp Invention participant.
Camp invention encourages the students by adding fun and creativity to stem subjects such as science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.
This year's curriculum is called "Epic," and was inspired by some of the nation's most brilliant minds.
