Camp Invention, a summer enrichment day camp program focusing on creativity, innovation, real-world problem solving and the spirit of invention, will be held June 6-10 at Oak Grove Primary School and June 13-17 at Central Primary School.
The camp is supported by the United States Patent and Trademark Office and is a product of the National Inventors Hall of Fame, a news release said.
Students entering grades one through six will use science, technology, engineering and mathematics in programs facilitated and taught by local educators.
Oak Grove Primary’s program, Epic, allows campers to construct and personalize a DIY solar-powered cricket and a unique habitat. Other activities include designing an eco-adventure park, brainstorming product ideas and building original prototypes and discovering the science of slime, demolition, electronic sound, giant squid and coding.
Morphed, the program at Central Primary, will have campers designing small vehicles to race, inventing bionic gadgets, deconstructing electronics to build insect-themed pinball machines, inventing and using circuits and designing solutions to nature-based challenges.
