About the Innovation Summer Camp 

Your ideas in motion! This weeklong high school summer day camp, for students entering grades 9 through 12, will introduce you to the basic principles and best practices of the innovation process and provide you with the opportunity to develop and present an innovation plan.

At camp, you will:

Then send the two documents to Dr. Lifeng Dong at ldong03@hamline.edu.
