Camp Invention, for students entering grades one through six, features lessons exploring connections between science, technology, engineering and innovation. Children work together to seek solutions to real-world problems, turn ordinary into extraordinary and sharpen critical 21st-century learning skills in several fascinating modules.
Brand-new this year is the Illuminate Program. In the Kart Wheel module, children let their engineering skills glide them across the finish line as they build, enhance and upgrade their very own freestyle racing cart. Boys and girls will explore what it means to prototype a product from scratch as they become an entrepreneur during the Design Studio: Illuminate module.
In the I Can Invent: Next Level Gamers module, participants will take apart broken or unused appliances using real tools to create a physical video game model in three dimensions. In the Inducted module, personalized video challenges from National Inventors Hall of Fame inductees are introduced, along with hands-on activities like constructing super-structure mega-towers, assembling out-of-this-world space rockets and more.
Instructors and staff are local educators that will facilitate program modules, and enthusiastic high school and college students will serve as leadership interns, ensuring that one staff member is in place for every eight children.
