Camp Invention 2019
In partnership with the National Inventors Hall of Fame, the Ball-Chatham School District is hosting "Camp Invention," July 29-August 2, to over 140 children entering grades 1-6.
It’s an exciting, weeklong summer adventure with lessons that explore connections between science, technology, engineering and innovation.
Children work together to seek solutions to real-world problems and sharpen critical 21st century learning skills while rotating through several fascinating modules.
Here is how young innovators are spending their time:
Children will team up to rebuild ships and design underwater equipment in “Deep Sea Mystery”
In “DIY Orbot,” participants explore circuit boards, motors and gears as they design a remote control bot to take on obstacles from sports to dance
Children collaborate with inventor superheroes and take on roles of engineers, fabricators, and innovators to conquer villains in “Innovation Force”
Kids become successful entrepreneurs in “Farm Tech” as they code bots to turn a polluted wasteland into a money-making machine and crate devices to save animals
Ball-Chatham teachers are facilitating program modules and enthusiastic high school students are serving as Leadership Interns, ensuring that one staff member is in place for every eight children.
