USM is excited to offer the nationally-acclaimed Camp Invention program to children entering grades one through six this summer. This exciting, weeklong 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), as well as history and the arts. Children will work together to seek innovative solutions to real-world problems and sharpen critical 21st century learning skills such as teamwork and creative problem solving as they rotate through five modules each day that disguise learning as fun.

This exciting week of five fun-filled modules begins on June 4, 2012, when Dr. Aimée K. Thomas will direct the Camp Invention ENVISION program at USM. Local educators will facilitate program modules, and enthusiastic high school and college students will serve as program counselors – ensuring that one staff member is in place for every eight children.

USM employees receive a $30 discount off of the $215 base price. Email me or call (601) 266-6374 for a special registration flyer. Every registration includes a Camp Invention T-shirt.

Availability is limited, so visit www.campinvention.org<http://www.campinvention.org/> or call 800.968.4332 to reserve your child’s spot today!
