Wild and crazy ideas become reality in this year’s all-new Camp Invention program, Fast Forward!

A nonprofit program of the National Inventors Hall of Fame, Camp Invention allows children in kindergarten through 6th grade to experience real-world problem solving, creative thinking, invention, and teamwork – all while having FUN!

Activities include challenges and achievements from the brightest thinkers around—National Inventors Hall of Fame Inductees – to inspire children!

This year, campers will bring their “smart” home to life with smart furniture and eco-smart energy, design a robotic dog and diagnose puppy problems, explore sensors by designing tracks for an Optibot, a robot that senses dark and light surfaces, and build Cake Catapults!

Local educators lead the week of fun, hands-on, STEM activities that allow children to think big, explore their curiosity, and never give up.
