Kids learn innovation, teamwork at Camp Invention in Libertyville
More than 120 kids have been learning about teamwork and solving real-world challenges through fun, hands-on activities this week during Camp Invention at Copeland Manor School in Libertyville.
The young participants rotate through five different modules with new lessons each day about science, technology, engineering, math, history and the arts. Many of the activities focus on inventing and involve recycled items donated by parents of participants.
Ten high school volunteer counselors from Vernon Hills, Carmel and Grayslake Central high schools and five adult teachers are leading the five-day camp, which ends today.
Camp Invention is a program of the National Inventors Hall of Fame and has been operating for almost 20 years.
