Summary: Review and Potential Approval to purchase the National Inventors Hall of Fame (https://www.invent.org) modules will support and enrich the summer program at 18 CARES K-8 schools. CARES will facilitate the hands-on, engaging, and problem based learning modules, Open Mic and Road Rally modules, one to two times a week at the 15 ( CARES 15 elementary and three middle school sites). All modules are aligned to the NGSS and empower students to collaborate, create, gain confidence and practice divergent thinking with the acclaimed summer enrichment program that has reached children nationwide for more than 30 years. Based on credible research and directly informed by world-changing inventors, Camp Invention® provides a new, tested program each year. Their engaging, hands-on modules are designed to meet the needs of K-8 students, helping them overcome summer learning loss and develop the Innovation Mindset — a growth mindset that instills essential skills for any area of life. The total purchase total of both the modules for 2,000 students across 18 sites is $169,970 (modules, shipping and no tax).
