Creative Contraption Warning! This is a camp designed by you—the Inventor! Each day, you’ll be given a series of challenges which must be overcome using basic materials, simple machines, tips from world famous inventors and the most important thing of all – your mind. With a little bit of ingenuity, you’ll construct catapults and forts and then lay siege. Fabricate a winning Egg Drop design, construct a dancing robot, and assemble a working light saber to take home. While Thomas Edison said invention is 10% inspiration and 90% perspiration, this camp is 100% fun! Note: This camp is open to children entering 2nd - 5th grade.
Day 1: Rock, Paper, Scissors
It is the middle ages, and your “army” is under siege. All you have at your disposal is paper, scissors, and … duct tape. What will you do? How will you defend your castle? How will you take the battle to their castle to vanquish your foes?
Day 2: Wild Blue Yonder
It took the world 100 years to go from traveling by horse and buggy to landing on the moon. You're smart—you'll do it in a day! Learn to fly gliders, planes, jets, and rockets.
Day 3: Shipwrecked!
If you were stranded on a desert island, how would you survive? Well, on this day, we will find out. You will need to build shelter, find food and water, and protect yourself and your teammates from the elements, and find a way off the island.
Day 4: Whiz Kidz
Did you know that an accident can become a great invention or that kids have created some of the gadgets we use every day? With materials that look a lot like, well ... junk, you'll be put to the test!
