Harmony School of Innovation given opportunity to offer Camp Invention

By Troy Blevins - Online Editor

SAN ANTONIO - A weeklong summer camp is inspiring students to get involved with science, technology, engineering and math early, so they can potentially explore a career in the STEM field later.

Harmony School of Innovation was given the opportunity from the Army Outreach Educational Program to offer Camp Invention to 60 students.

The students are developing their creativity, problem solving skills and innovation in a way that's collaborative and fun.

"The kids here are exploring, learning, tinkering so they can be the next inventors, come up with the next big thing," said Kim Lindenfeld, regional representative for Camp Invention.

"I like how we get to build things. It's super fun," said Aaliyah Limones, who is attending Camp Invention. "It's just really exciting because they let us do our own thing."

Camp Invention was inspired by the inductees of the National Inventors Hall of Fame.

The camp wraps up Friday.
