Description

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 the world of 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!

Before and After-Care is available directly through the Olivette Community Center. Call 314-991-1249 to signup for before and after-care.

Additional Information

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?
Science Fiction
Journey to the future and examine the ultramodern inventions of the 23rd century. Then design the future - today. "Create" light sabers, hovercraft, and jet packs.
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, protect yourself and your teammates from the elements and find a way off the island!
Think Fast
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. Will you be the camp's Top Gun?
Whiz Kids
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! Will you be the next Jimmy Neutron?
