Long Beach Public Schools again held the inquiry-based, STEAM-focused Camp Invention during two weeklong sessions in July. Students in grades 1-6 took on various challenges as they collaborated as innovators, explorers and problem solvers.

Based at Long Beach Middle School, Camp Invention ran during the weeks of July 8 and July 15. Attendees used upcycled materials as an environmentally conscious way to experiment and explore. 

Approximately 265 Long Beach students participated in this year’s program, either as campers, counselors or counselors-in-training. Hands-on, interactive workshops featured a variety of activities that incorporated robotics, engineering, coding, business management, invention development and other advanced skills.
