Inspire the inventor and scientist in you during this week of discovery and invention. Each day children will 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! If you were stranded on a desert island how would you survive? You will need to build shelter, find food and purify water, protect yourself and your teammates from the elements and find a way off the island. Journey to the future and examine the ultramodern inventions of the 23rd century. Then design the future - today! Create mini light sabers, mini-space stations, and electric flying contraptions. With a little bit of ingenuity, you’ll construct catapults and forts, build Ruberg contraptions that perform simple tasks, and experiment with humanoid robots. Take home projects include ping-pong ball launchers, mousetrap contraption cars, mystery sticks, tubular blow darts, and other wacky contraptions. While Thomas Edison said, “invention is 10% inspiration and 90% perspiration” this camp is 100% FUN!
