Camp Invention | Park University

July 9, 2018 - July 13, 2018

In partnership with the National Inventors Hall of Fame, Park University will offer the nationally acclaimed Camp Invention program to children entering grades K-6.

The weeklong summer adventure includes 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 camp includes:

• 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

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.
