Camp Invention | emPowerU (St. Joseph, MO)
July 9 - July 13
Wild and crazy ideas become reality in this year’s all-new Camp Invention program, Fast Forward. A nonprofit program of the National Inventors Hall of Fame, Camp Invention allows children in K-6th grade to experience real-world problem solving, creative thinking, invention and teamwork.
Activities include challenges and achievements from the brightest thinkers around. This year, campers will bring their “smart” home to life with smart furniture and eco-smart energy, design a robotic dog and diagnose puppy problems, explore sensors by designing tracks for an Optibot robot and build Cake Catapults! Local educators lead the week of fun, hands-on, STEM activities that allow children to think big, explore their curiosity, and never give up.
Camp hours are 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Don’t forget to take your two robots home!
