Wild and crazy ideas become reality in this year's all-new Camp Invention program, Fast Forward! A nonprofit program of the National Inventors Hall of Fame, Camp Invention allows students entering kindergarten through 6th grade to experience real-world problem solving, creative thinking, invention, and teamwork - all while having FUN! Activities include challenges and achievements from the brightest thinkers around--National Inventors Hall of Fame inductees - to inspire young innovators! This year, campers will bring their "smart" home to life with smart furniture and eco-smart energy, design a robotic dog and diagnose puppy problems, explore sensors by designing tracks for an Optibot, a robot that senses dark and light surfaces, and build Cake Catapults! Local educators lead the week of fun, hands-on, STEM activities that allow participants to think big, explore their curiosity, and never give up. Early registration discounts are available.
