Camp Invention 2022

Camp Invention is Back!
Posted on 03/18/2022

In partnership with the National Inventors Hall of Fame® (NIHF), CSE is pleased to offer the nationally acclaimed Camp Invention program to children entering kindergarten through sixth grade. This exciting, weeklong summer adventure provides opportunities for open-ended, hands-on exploration of science, technology, engineering and more! Rotating through a variety of exciting activities each day, children have fun collaborating with friends, thinking creatively and inventing their own solutions to real-world challenges.

The week begins on June 6th with Jennifer Jensen, CSE Innovation Lab teacher, serving as Director. The all-new 2022 program will thrill both new and returning campers with an expedition full of far-reaching explorations, fascinating discoveries and exhilarating “a-ha” moments!

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. 

 Former CSE Students Needed!
We are looking for former CSE students as well! Those students entering 7th-9th grades can serve as “Leaders in Training,” while high school and college students can serve as “Leadership Interns.” Please reach out to Jennifer for more information on these two opportunities. This can be a great way for students to get their volunteer hours.
