The National Inventors Hall of Fame started Camp Invention as an educational outreach program at two schools in 1990. In 1999 it became a joint project with the United States Patent and Trademark Office. Since its inception, Camp Invention has expanded to schools nationwide. Leander ISD has hosted summer Camp Inventions since the summer of 2002.
In partnership with Invent Now, Leander ISD is pleased to offer two weeks of the nationally-acclaimed Camp Invention program to children entering grades kindergarten through six. These weeklong summer camps immerse children in hands-on exploration of science, technology, engineering, arts and math (STEAM). Campers work together to seek innovative solutions to real-world problems and sharpen critical learning skills such as teamwork and creative problem solving. LISD educators facilitate the program modules, and LISD middle school students serve as Leaders-In-Training and LISD high school students serve as Volunteer Leadership Interns.
