Academy of Applied Science
Camp Invention Connect
Join us for a week of STEM activities and exploration!
August 3-7, 2020
Registration Deadline: July 20, 2020
The Academy of Applied Science is thrilled to bring Camp Invention Connect™ to our community in partnership with the National Inventors Hall of Fame®. This all-new, at-home version of the nationally acclaimed Camp Invention® program will bring inventors in grades K-6 an exciting, week-long summer adventure exploring science, technology, engineering, and innovation.
Four activity kits packed full of materials are sent directly to each participant prior to camp, so they can go outside, get active, and stretch their imaginations with engaging hands-on activities. The Academy’s Young Inventors’ Program Coaches will engage inventors daily in projects, energizers, and STEM-tastic activities.
During AAS Camp Invention Connect, young innovators will:
- Explore the principles of flight, pilot paper airplanes and hand-copters, and experiment with two flight simulation robots — one to take apart and investigate and one to personalize!
- Learn the value of their creativity and bring their biggest ideas to life as they sketch and build prototypes, design logos, market their invention, and protect their intellectual property.
- Go outdoors to take on environmental challenges, exploring bio-luminescence by creating glowing LED flowers and building parachutes to safely airdrop animals in their habitats.
- Discover the great inventors behind their favorite sports and apply their own game-changing ingenuity to build the ultimate sports complex, and then head outside to play their new games.
AAS’s Camp Invention Connect is dynamic, flexible program.It can be screen-free and self-led or it can be enhanced through online collaboration sessions with Coaches and fellow campers.
While screen time and the need for parental involvement are kept to a minimum, inspiration, exploration and creativity are unlimited!
