Camp Invention Flight Lab™
Throughout the week, children build and launch hand-copters, rockets, paper planes and gliders to discover the principles of flight. With the help of their very own take-home robot, LINK, campers also explore the components used in airplanes and helicopters to learn how they work.
Design Thinking Project™
Children learn the value of their ideas by transforming them into inventions that solve real-world problems. Using our inventor-inspired Design Thinking Process, campers brainstorm and work together to create new solutions or make existing technology even better, and they’ll discover how to protect their creations with the power of intellectual property.
Children become environmental heroes as they build prototypes, explore energy conservation and eliminate pollution. Each day, children develop confidence as they experiment with ways to clean contaminated water and brainstorm strategies to best protect vulnerable habitats. Students are encouraged to use their newfound environmental mindset in their everyday lives.
Camp Invention Champions™
Here, children discover the inventors behind their favorite sports! Applying lessons from these world-changing figures and using their creative problem-solving skills, campers get the chance to invent their very own games and specialized equipment. Children also design and create their own sports complex that they can take home and work on long after camp is over.
