The National Inventors Hall of Fame has transformed its summer STEM camp, Camp Invention, into a new at-home program called Camp Invention Connect. The program balances active, independent hands-on exploration with opportunities for socialization from home.
Parents and children will find a wide variety of engaging camp activities to take part in when they dive into Camp Wonderopolis. Some of the activities revolve around STEM-field careers, others are designed to boost literacy and comprehension, and still others to help foster and improve critical thinking and creativity in young minds.
Simple Interactions, a project of the Fred Rogers Center in partnership with researchers at Harvard University and University of Pittsburgh, has been adopted by schools, afterschool and summer programs, and other organizations for children in 35 states and several countries, including in China, Canada, and Scotland. Under the program, educators’ interactions with children are filmed to help strengthen relationships and educators’ professional growth.
Bridge to Enter Advanced Mathematics (BEAM) creates pathways for underserved students to become scientists, mathematicians, engineers, and computer scientists. The nonprofit has provided its services for free to more than 600 students since 2011.
