Camp Invention is coming to Old Mission Peninsula School June 24-28, 2019

9 AM - 3:30 PM Monday - Friday

Camp Invention® is returning to Old Mission Peninsula School!
In partnership with the National Inventors Hall of Fame® (NIHF), Old Mission Peninsula School is
pleased to offer the nationally acclaimed Camp Invention® program to children entering kindergarten
through sixth grade. It’s an exciting, week long summer adventure with lessons that explore
connections between science, technology, engineering and innovation. Children work together to
create solutions to real-world problems and build critical 21st
-century skills while rotating through
several high-energy, hands-on modules.

The week begins on June 24, 2019 with Carolyn Mammen serving as Director of the ALL-NEW
2019 program: Supercharged!
Here are how young innovators will be spending their time:
~ Exploring the electrifying relationship between frequency, circuitry, motors and gears through
reverse-engineering and rebuilding their very own remote-controlled robot.
~ Unearthing hidden fossils then building ships and innovative equipment to embark on a
research expedition to uncover more exciting information about their discovery.
~ Coding and programming robot, Bot-ANN-E, to take on duties and help turn a polluted
wasteland into a fruitful farm and successful business.
~ Collaborating with the Innovation Force® , a team of NIHF Inventors turned action-packed
superheroes, to design superhero gadgets and disguises, explore the fields of engineering
and fabrication and take on the sinister villain, the Plagiarizer.

Activities give participants the opportunity to explore, discover and achieve while having fun!

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