About Project

iNviTECH Clubhouse is home to all of iNviTECH's before and after school programs, camps, and track-out programs for K-8 students. Programs are designed to provide students with a hands-on learning curriculum to engage students in a variety of STEM subjects while equipping them with the 21st-century skills they need to excel in today's heavily STEM-based society. iNviTECH Clubhouse's STEM Summer Camp provides a stimulating and enriching environment for 1st-6th grade students (ages 5-12) to learn, grow, and explore. Throughout the camp, children learn about the world around them by “doing” with hands-on, meaningful experiences called “explorations!”.
