Camp Invention takes summer fun and transforms it from ordinary to extraordinary!
In partnership with the National Inventors Hall of Fame, Lakewood City Schools and Horace Mann Elementary School is pleased to offer the nationally acclaimed Camp Invention program to children entering grades K-6. It’s an exciting, weeklong summer adventure with lessons that explore connections between science, technology, engineering and innovation. Children will work together to seek solutions to real-world problems and sharpen critical 21st century learning skills while rotating through several fascinating modules. The week begins on June 11, 2018 with Autumn Sabin serving as director of the Fast Forward™ program.
Here is how young innovators will be spending their time:
- Dreaming up and designing their very own futuristic smart home filled with gadgets, LEDs, technology and innovation
- Using tools to take apart robotic dogs and compare their inner mechanics to the anatomy and physiology of a real dog
- Designing tracks for their Optibots to follow while exploring different modes of transportation
- Exploring chemistry, non-Newtonian fluids and magnetism as they investigate magnetic slime
All activities give participants the opportunity to explore, discover and achieve while having fun. Local educators will facilitate program modules and enthusiastic high school students will serve as Leadership Interns, ensuring that one staff member is in place for every eight children.
Every registration includes a complimentary Camp Invention t-shirt. Availability is limited, so visit www.lakewoodrecreation.com to secure your child’s spot today!
