Camp Invention at Minnesota Discovery Center

Camp Invention at Minnesota Discovery Center invites kids grades K-6 who are curious about science and technology to explore their interests and learn some amazing skills this summer! The program starts on July 10th and goes through July 14th. This year’s all-new program is designed to ignite wonder, encourage confidence and build essential STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) skills through collaborative, creative problem solving. As campers join their friends in so much hands-on fun and excitement, they will be blown away by their discoveries and STEM successes!

Make sure to register in advance for Camp Invention at Minnesota Discovery Center and enhance your kid’s learning through fun!


Build Big Ideas with Pop-Up Venture

Teaching youth how to start and maintain businesses with this program designed to get kids familiarized with the basic concepts of being entrepreneurs! 

 Campers create a business plan and choose how to spend their startup funds. Employing their imaginations, they add lights, greenery, logoed signage and other features to attract customers. After inventing unique ways to distribute their products, children launch their business with the ultimate pop-up event!

Create & Skate with Catching Air

Kids explore physics by building their own skate park complete with bowls, ramps, & rails! Campers personalize their mini skateboards, create DIY skateboard riders and design awesome skate park features. Then it’s time to grind the rails of innovation as they kickflip their way through each other’s one-of-a-kind Skate Parks!

Show Your Style with MimicBot

Children investigate the inner workings of their own MimicBot — a robot that mimics sounds — and transform it into a one-of-a-kind animatronic stuffie! They find inspiration in nature, get hands-on with design and use the power of intellectual property to protect their stuffie from the idea-stealing Copy Cat. Then campers take their stuffie home to keep creating and innovating!

Party On with Invention Celebration

Teach kids how to become successful event planners! They have fun engineering light-up party hats, inventing a Party Assistant to help with their big plans, exploring color with bubble art banners and experimenting with sound as they create instruments. When the day of the big celebration arrives, children rotate between fun stations as they celebrate all their amazing accomplishments.
