Camp Invention, a summer enrichment day camp program, is coming to Walnut Creek Elementary School in Galena the week of July 11.
For students entering grades 1-6, Camp Invention is a week-long program that features hands-on problem solving, using science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
This year’s Camp Invention curriculum is called “Epic.”
Epic features hands-on modules like “CrickoBot,” where campers construct and personalize a do-it-yourself solar-powered cricket and a unique habitat; “Epic Park,” where campers work in teams to design an eco-adventure park; “I Can Invent: Maker Studio,” where campers brainstorm product ideas and build original prototypes using real tools and components found in everyday devices; and “The Lab: Where Pigs Fly,” where children can discover the science of slime, demolition, electronic sound, giant squid and coding.
Local programs are facilitated and taught by educators who reside and teach in the community.
Students can find out more and register at campinvention.org.
