    High School Innovation Camp

    Canceled for 2020

    Hamline has made the difficult decision to cancel all high school summer camps, including the Innovation Camp, to keep you and our community safe. We're just as disappointed as you are, so we encourage you to apply again next year! 

    If you've already registered, we'll contact you via email.

    About the camp

    This camp will introduce basic principles and best practices of the innovation process and provide the opportunity to develop and present an innovation plan. 

    At camp, you will:

    • Learn ins and outs of the innovative process from accomplished innovators such as Arthur Fry, inventor of the Post-it Note.

    • Visit local innovative corporations such as Ecolab and Medtronic.

    • Work with a team to develop, write, and present an innovation plan that focuses on market analysis, financial planning, risk management, systems thinking, opportunity analysis, and intellectual property.
