Camp Invention®, a nationally recognized, nonprofit summer enrichment program, is coming to Radford University June 20 through June 24.
Camp Invention is the only nationally recognized summer program focused on creativity, innovation, real-world problem solving, and the spirit of invention. Through hands-on programming, Camp Invention encourages children entering kindergarten through the sixth grade to explore science, technology, engineering, and mathematics curricula inspired by some of the world’s greatest inventors. Since 1990, Camp Invention’s education programs have served more than 1.9 million children, and 210,000 teachers and leadership interns.
This year’s Explore program includes the following hands-on activities:
Robotic Aquatics™: Children will dive into cutting-edge ocean research as they adopt their own aquatic animals, design and patent aquatic plants, and take their new friend home in a mini-tank.
National Inventors Hall of Fame’s The Attic™: Campers will combine science and art to build their own robotic artist, engage in design thinking, make spin art, and learn how inventions can change the way people create.
Spacecation™: Children will discover real space exploration technology when they create Spacepacks and Astro-Arm devices, mine an asteroid, and observe erupting ice volcanoes.
Marble Arcade™: Campers will experiment with the fun of physics, engineering ,and gaming as they design, build, and test their own mega-marble arcades.
