Camp Invention Connect balances virtual collaboration with independent, hands-on exploration for GT students. This is a virtual version of Camp Invention that includes lots of hands on building and creating with only about 20-30 minutes per day of optional online time. That means screen time and the need for parental involvement are kept to a minimum, while imagination, inspiration and hands-on creativity are unlimited. Materials are packaged and sent to each individual participant’s home address and then certified teachers coach a group of up to 20 students each through the week’s activities.
