Introducing our Camp Invention 2022 program, Explore! This will be our 9th year hosting this 1 week summer program! Registration: https://invent-web.ungerboeck.com/programsearch/moreinfo.aspx?event=36857 Give your young innovator an unforgettable adventure! All-new, hands-on activities will launch their imagination and get their confidence soaring as they explore STEM fun from the oceans to outer space. Read more about what your camper will do each day at camp: PROBLEM SOLVING Campers create a habitat for their own robotic fish — complete with a symbiotic friend — and prototype the next great aquatic innovation to lure in and hook investors at the fish market. CONFIDENCE Inspired by real space exploration, children construct a Spacepack, engineer an Astro-Arm device, complete gravity-defying cooking challenges, mine asteroids and observe erupting ice volcanoes. CREATIVITY Making exciting connections between science and art, campers build their own robotic artist to make awesome spin art and discover how inventions have changed the way people create. PERSISTENCE Children experiment with the fun of physics and engineering when they build and test their own mega marble arcade, then take on collaborative challenges to level up their design thinking.
