Summer Camps: Invent-O-Rama


Think bigger this summer! Excite and inspire your inner innovator through a week-long entrepreneurship camp. Whether you geek out over business, design arts, or science & technology, our unique program will challenge your creativity and problem-solving skills as you build real-world solutions for the 21st century. From initial idea to perfect pitch, you will experience the thrill of working with other young entrepreneurs to make your vision a reality using the latest techniques and tools.

 

Why Invent-O-Rama?


Being an entrepreneur means more than business. It’s about solving problems through ideas. Here’s how we equip youth to be 21st century problem solvers:

IDEAS EVERYWHERE
We develop the critical skills, attitudes, and techniques needed to identify potential and activate change around us.

THE ART OF INNOVATION
We tackle real-world business challenges that put our creativity and problem-solving abilities to the test.

THE SCIENCE OF ENTREPRENEURSHIP
Entrepreneurship and STEM go hand in hand. We explore how scientific thinking and entrepreneurial skills can combine to accelerate discovery and fuel new products and markets.

CAREERS OF TOMORROW
We investigate fields of study, research, or employment that hold huge promise for tomorrow’s innovations.

BEING A BIG DEAL
It takes more than simply having great ideas to be a visionary leader. We practice turning insight into action and doing what it takes to amplify our ideas.

Camp Blueprint


DAY 1: FOUNDATIONS We dive into what it means to be an entrepreneur by flexing our leadership skills and building teams around our big ideas.

DAY 2: CONCEPTUALIZE The path from idea to product is never straightforward. We predict how we can solve users’ problems and build prototypes to test our theories.

DAY 3: VALIDATE We pack up our prototypes and head out into the community to find out what people love, what they don’t, and collect data to improve our products.

DAY 4: REFINE With a clear picture of our idea’s brilliance, teams package and polish our products until they shine.

DAY 5: PITCH Teams race to the finish line as we prepare pitches for our open house that will knock the socks off our panel of judges.
