National Inventor's Hall of Fame

Our nationally recognized K-6 summer enrichment program,
Camp Invention®, has brought authentic invention education
to children across the country for more than 30 years. Each
year, a brand new curriculum is developed and tested
to deliver hands-on activities that encourage divergent
thinking. Camp Invention is backed by independent research
and designed to spark imaginations through open-ended
engagement in creative problem solving.

ROBOTIC AQUATICS™
Using ocean research, children design
tanks for their own robotic fish, discover
symbiotic relationships, and develop
and pitch bio-inspired inventions.

NIHF’S THE ATTIC™
Learning how innovations shape the
way we make art, children experiment
with animation, chemistry and materials
science using everything from paint to
robots.

SPACECATION™
Inspired by real discoveries on distant
planets, asteroids and moons, children
create Spacepacks, build Astro-Arm
devices and explore phenomena on
Jupiter’s moons.

MARBLE ARCADE™
Through teamwork and experimentation,
children investigate physics, engineering,
mathematics and gaming as they design,
build and test a mega marble machine.
