CAMP INVENTION 2019 AT COSHOCTON ELEMENTARY SCHOOL
More than 90 students in grades K-6 were busy at Coshocton Elementary School June 10-14, 2019. They built “DIY Orbots,” created star x-rays, and designed hay-launchers to feed cattle. It’s part of Camp Invention in Coshocton County. This “hands-on” STEM educational program, developed by the National Inventors Hall of Fame in North Canton, is aimed at helping kids become critical thinkers and creative problem solvers. The camps are led by experienced local educators. Camp Invention has been around for 11 years in Coshocton County with new curriculum introduced each year, inspired by the Inductees of the National Inventors Hall of Fame. Local students attended Camp Invention this year thanks, in part, to support from these funds at the Coshocton Foundation:
- The Blessings Fund
- Coshocton Kiwanis Club Fund
- Edwin F. Mulligan Endowment Fund
- Pierce Family Fund
- Simpson Family Donor Advised Fund
- Ralph D. & Judy P. Wisenburg Fund
Other sponsors this year include:
- Coshocton Rotary Club
- Wiley’s Finest
- McWane Ductile
With this support camp costs each child just $30. Also, special thanks to the Montgomery Foundation for its assistance in expanding the program to River View. The Coshocton Foundation is proud to support Camp Invention in our community–thanks to the generosity of our donors!
