The program will be held August 4-8 from 9:00am to 3:30pm each day, and is for students entering grades 1-6.

Camp Invention’s fun, hands-on activities will include: designing a small, motor-powered vehicle, receiving personalized challenges from National Inventors Hall of Fame Inductees, inventing bionic gadgets while journeying to acquire superhuman senses, and using tools to upcycle electronics and build an epic, insect-themed pinball machine.

The Camp Invention program will be presented by local teachers and directed by Dr. Tamara Pease, Mount Marty College assistant professor of chemistry and director of forensic science program.
Throughout the week, children work in teams to solve real-world challenges. Some activities include:
• Explore the science behind the five senses to design a bionic ear, eye, and hand
• Experiment with circuits and gears
• With inspiration from famous inventors, create your own invention
• Build a motorized “morphing” vehicle to take home!
• Design an epic, insect-themed pinball machine
