A free two-day invention camp will be held July 30-31 at Oregon Coast Community College in Lincoln City for sixth-, seventh- or eighth-grade students. The day camp is operated by Oregon State University and sponsored by Oregon Coast STEM Hub.
“OSU engineering students will be running the camp and focus on hands-on activities and learning the invention process.” Oregon Coast STEM Hub Interim Director Tracy Crews said via telephone interview.
The camp is provided by OSU Precollege Programs and supported by The Lemelson Foundation. Hours are 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. and is not an overnight stay. Lunch and snacks will be provided.

This is one of five OSU Mobile Invention Camps being offered for Oregon Coast STEM Hub students this summer. The two in Clatsop county filled up very quickly, but there are spaces available in the Lincoln County and Coos County camps.
This camp is intended for incoming 6-8 grade students who are enrolled in public, private or home schools.
