Summer Programs in response to COVID-19

As leaders in STEM education, we understand the challenges of managing school closures like those occurring in response to COVID-19. As director of Camp Invention at Council Rock for the past several years, I decided to combine efforts with STEM Stars and Camp Invention Connect. I  will continue to direct the camp and our CR teachers will instruct the online curriculum.


21st Century Skills


STEM Stars begins with the 4Cs


We prepare young people for citizenship and the global society. Campers critically think and problem solve, regardless of their starting point. Team mates learn to articulate with clarity, articulation, coherent instructions and motivation. By the end of camp, your child will produce collaborative  projects with creative and competitive spirits.

Tomorrow's Leaders

We teach kids HOW to think, lead, and achieve. Attending camp is a step towards a successful future. We know that to inspire students, we have to fuel their imagination.

Teachers of Innovation

We motivate children to lead the STEM revolution. We believe in the drive we know as scientific curiosity, that fire and that inspiration. As science teachers, it is our job to ignite it by sharing our excitement for discovery and investigation.
