Camp Invention is returning to Thomas Jefferson Independent Day - KOAM TV 7

Camp Invention is returning to Thomas Jefferson Independent Day School with all new activities

Updated:

In partnership with the National Inventors Hall of Fame, Thomas Jefferson Independent Day School is pleased to offer the nationally-acclaimed Camp Invention program to children entering grades one through six. It’s an exciting, weeklong summer adventure in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) that’s all about big ideas. Children will work together to seek innovative solutions to real-world problems and sharpen critical 21st century learning skills as they rotate through four modules that reinvent summer fun.

This unforgettable week of the MORPHED!™ program at Thomas Jefferson Independent Day School is scheduled for the week of July 14th, from 9 a.m. - 3:30 p.m.

In the Super Go module, students design a small, motor-powered vehicle that zooms! Girls and boys 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 epic, insect-themed pinball machine!

Register early to get the deepest discounts! Every registration includes a complimentary Camp Invention t-shirt. Availability is limited, so visit www.campinvention.org or call (800) 968- 4332 to reserve your child’s spot today.
