For six years we’ve provided camps and workshops fostering creative problem solving. One parent wrote, “My son was very excited every day…In the past, I sent my kids to many different camps, and I can tell you, this was a great fit, growing my son’s interest in technical and creative areas.”
June 11th – 15th 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
Calling all inventors! Create your own battery operated motorized invention. Campers will begin by taking apart an electric fan and a motorized toy to see how they work. Using different materials, you’ll build a toy car, boat, rocket and a Grabber I. At the Toy Zoo you’ll explore a wild toy menagerie. For your final project, you’ll reengineer random parts from our Parts Department into your own unique battery operated invention. Team based activities will reinforce creative building skills. If you like working with motors, batteries, switches, PVC, tools, and thinking outside of the box you’ll love this camp! (Previously offered as DI Inventors I) Ages: 8 – 12
