Imagination clicked, chirped and ran wild this week at the Camp Invention program hosted at Neshannock Memorial School. "Our buzz words for this year were #collaborate, #create, #tinker and #reinvent," said camp director Alicia Measel, a sixth-grade teacher in the school district who is in her third year leading the program.

There are still ‪#CampInvention‬ programs running #nationwide. Visit campinvention.org & secure your spot today!

Campers at the #CampInvention program hosted at Oster Elementary in California had the opportunity to meet and speak with 2014 National Inventors Hall of Fame Inductee Ashok Gadgil this week. Gadgil shared how he used his inventiveness and #creativity from a young age to invent UV Waterworks, a water disinfecting device, along with making efficient electric lighting affordable and more energy efficient stoves! #NIHF
