FAIRMONT — This week, Rivesville Elementary and Middle School will be hosting a summer camp that will foster and encourage hands-on learning in the areas of science, technology, engineering and math.

For the second year in a row, Camp Invention, a program created by Invent Now, Inc. in partnership with the National Inventors Hall of Fame and the United State Patent and Trademark Office, will provide students in grades one through six with unique learning experiences.

“Everything is hands-on and inquiry-based activities,” Tracie Pacheco, regional program manager, said. “ We’re really trying to spark the kids’ imaginations and present children with real world challenges.”

Camp Invention will take place from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
