Camp Invention Program Coming to District 308 This Summer
May 11, 2015 04:36PM ● Published by Steven Jack
It is an exciting, weeklong summer adventure with lessons that explore connections between science, technology, engineering and innovation. Children will work together to seek solutions to real-world problems, turn ordinary into extraordinary, and sharpen critical 21st century learning skills, while rotating through several fascinating modules.
This week begins June 15 when Maryam Osuch will direct the Camp Invention Illuminate program at Boulder Hill Elementary School.
In the KartWheel module, children let their engineering skills glide them across the finish line as they build, enhance and upgrade their very own freestyle racing cart. Boys and girls will explore what it means to prototype a product from scratch as they become an entrepreneur during the Design Studio: Illuminate module. In the I Can Invent: Next Level Gamers module, participants will take apart broken or unused appliances using real tools to create a physical video game model in the third dimension.
Finally, in the Inducted module, personalized video challenges from National Inventors Hall of Fame Inductees are introduced along with hands-on activities like constructing super-structure mega-towers, assembling out-of-this-world space rockets and so much more.
Local educators will facilitate program modules, while high school and college students serve as leadership interns.
