In partnership with Invent Now, Frisco ISD is offering the nationally acclaimed Camp Invention program to children entering grades one through six. Natural Awakenings North Texas readers that register by March 30 receive $25 off the base price of $230. Every registration includes a free Camp Invention T-shirt.
The weeklong summer adventure in creativity immerses children in imaginative play that reinforces and supplements school-year learning in the subjects of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). Children work together to seek innovative solutions to real-world problems and sharpen critical learning skills, such as teamwork and creative problem solving, as they rotate through four modules each day that disguise learning as fun.
The week of fun-filled modules begins June 11, with children venturing onto the Ci6000 Space Modulator Time Machine for a fantasy adventure, building their own inventions and adapting features for various situations, learning the power of combining magnetism and electricity and designing machines while learning the importance of gears, motors, springs, and magnets. Children combine physical activity and creativity during fun, energetic games, based on the children’s ages and ability. Local educators facilitate program modules and high school and college students serve as leadership interns, ensuring that one staff member is in place for every eight children.
