Camp Invention is June 2-6
Jamestown Public Schools will offer the Camp Invention program to children entering grades 2-6. The event will be held June 2-6, and a local educator will direct the Camp Invention MORPHED! program at Jamestown High School.
Camp Invention is a weeklong, summer program that provides programming in the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics, according to its website. Children will work together to seek innovative solutions to real-world problems and sharpen their learning skills as they rotate through the four modules.
Jamestown Public Schools entered in a partnership with the National Inventors Hall of Fame to offer this program.
In the “Super Go” module, students design a small, motor-powered vehicle. Students will collect energy coins along the way for building ramps, bridges and tunnels for the Super Go Road Rally.
Participants will receive personalized challenges from National Inventors Hall of Fame inductees that will ignite a spirit of creativity, innovation and entrepreneurship during the “Design Studio: Morphed!” module.
Throughout the “Amplified” module, children invent bionic gadgets while journeying to acquire superhuman senses. Time will be spent encountering illusions and discovering if they are a supertaster.
Finally, Camp Invention’s flagship module, “I Can Invent: Pinbug,” allows participants to use tools to upcycle electronics and build an insect-themed pinball machine.
High school and college students will serve as leadership interns, ensuring that one staff member will be in place for every eight children.
