Camp Invention to be held at PBES August 8-12, 2016

Jan. 20, 2016—In partnership with the National Inventors Hall of Fame, Guilderland Central School District is pleased to once again offer the nationally-acclaimed Camp Invention program to children entering grades one through six this summer. The program runs from August 8-12, from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at Pine Bush Elementary School.

 

It’s an exciting, week-long summer adventure with lessons that explore connections between science, technology, engineering and innovation. Children will work together to seek solutions to real-world problems and sharpen critical 21st century learning skills while rotating through several fascinating modules. The week begins on at Pine Bush Elementary School on August 8, 2016 with Ashley Girard serving as Director of the Epic™ program!

Here is how young innovators will be spending their time:
Brainstorming product ideas and building original prototypes using real tools and components found in everyday devices
Exploring the lives of giant insects, colorful animals and their environments
Constructing and personalizing a DIY solar-powered cricket with a unique habitat
Discovering the science of slime, demolition, electronic sound, giant squid and coding

All activities give participants the opportunity to be a part of something big while having fun!

Local educators will facilitate program modules and enthusiastic high school students will serve as Leadership Interns ensuring that one staff member is in place for every eight children.

Register on or before March 21, 2016 to receive $25 off the base price. Every registration includes a complimentary Camp Invention t-shirt. Availability is limited, so visit www.campinvention.org or call 800.968.4332 to secure your child’s spot today.
