Camp Invention at DSU still taking registrations

Posted on 7/24/2012

Dickinson State University will host Camp Invention, July 30 to Aug. 3, in Murphy Hall on the DSU campus. The camp is from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. each day and directed by Alison Hafele, DSU STEM coordinator.

During the camp, children will rotate through four exciting, hands-on modules that require imagination, creative problem-solving and teamwork to solve real-world challenges. Children will explore science skills such as buoyancy, orienteering and magnetism on the island of Magnetropolis™; take a fantasy adventure on the Ci6000 Space Modulator Time Machine to explore moments that make the process of inventing fantastic in the Inventeureka™ module; and practice teamwork, cooperation, coordination, and creative problem solving processes during fun, energetic games in Action and Adventure Games™. In I Can Invent: Balloon Burst™, children will dismantle broken machines from home using real tools and create multi-step inventions that they name and prepare to market.

Local teachers will facilitate the program modules and high school students will serve as leadership interns. This renowned program features a low staff-to-child ratio, with one staff member for every eight children. Camp Invention is open to children entering grades one through six.

Registration is available online at or by calling 1-800-968-4332. For more information regarding DSU's Camp Invention, contact
