The Children’s Science Center in Fairfax has partnered with Camp Invention to bring its nationally acclaimed enrichment programs, Club Invention and Camp Invention, to the region. These programs will engage children in grades one through six to discover their own innate creativity through hands-on STEM curriculum.
“We are thrilled to begin this partnership with The Children’s Science Center,” said Invent Now Inc. chief operating officer, Monica Jones. “The Club and Camp Invention curriculum align perfectly with the mission of the Children’s Science Center and will offer expanded STEM learning through real-world examples.”
Children’s Science Center Lab at Fair Oaks Mall will be including Club and Camp Invention programming throughout 2016. The Center will kick off with Club Invention in a winter session of weekly classes beginning Jan. 18 and running through mid-March, followed by spring and fall sessions of classes. In the summer, the Center will add eight weeks of Camp Invention to its traditional camp programming.
“We are thrilled to be able to offer the region’s first Club Invention classes and provide more Camp Invention opportunities to children here in Northern Virginia,” says executive director, Nene Spivy. “The partnership with Invent Now makes high-quality STEM curriculum accessible for many more children and greatly enables the mission of the Children’s Science Center to instill a love of learning in STEM in all children. “
