2021 Invent the Summer Kickoff

Don’t you wish the world was filled with innovative and creative kids?  Well, actually it is and INVENT THE SUMMER is ready to prove it!

INVENT THE SUMMER is a non-profit organization created by kids, for kids. We inspire creativity, resourcefulness, innovation, problem solving, and leadership by engaging kids in design and engineering challenges throughout the summer. We aim to help kids discover how much fun engineering, inventing, and problem solving can be. Our mission is to inspire the next generation of innovators, engineers and entrepreneurs. Our programming supports this mission for kids from elementary school through high school.

Your donation will go towards growing our program and providing prizes for our young inventors and engineers that will inspire continued innovation. Prizes might include 3D printers, 3D pens, robotics kits, circuit sets, and much more.

"Our daughters (ages 10, 7 and 4) have loved taking on the Invent the Summer weekly challenges, and I have enjoyed watching them work together to complete the challenges.  Being able to share their videos each week has motivated them not to give up when their initial ideas have failed (even after many failed attempts!).  ITS has helped our daughters to appreciate that there are many different ways to problem-solve and has opened their minds to exploring things outside of their comfort zone (I was surprised when our 10-year-old opted for an engineering challenge for a Girl Scout badge "because it sounds fun like Invent the Summer").  We look forward to participating again this summer!"
