BRYAN, Tex. (KBTX)- Registration is available now for Camp Invention: Supercharged. It's a high-energy, hands-on STEM camp happening this summer at the Brazos School for Inquiry & Creativity.

After attending Camp Invention for just one week, research from the Institute for Learning Innovation found that participants experienced significant short- and long-term improvements in creativity, STEM interest, and problem-solving skills.

Unfortunately, many parents in our community who want to provide this opportunity for their children cannot afford the registration fee.

The Brazos School for Inquiry and Creativity is also seeking donors to help sponsor students who may not have the financial means to attend the camp.
