Camp Invention® is coming to Lawrence County

LAWRENCE COUNTY - MAY 3, 2022 - In partnership with the National Inventors Hall of Fame® (NIHF), North Lawrence Community Schools is pleased to offer the nationally acclaimed Camp Invention program to children entering kindergarten through sixth grade.

"We have a Leaders in Training program for incoming seventh through ninth graders. 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," said Jamie Hooten, Lincoln Elementary School.

The week begins on June 27 with Jamie Sterling Hooten serving as Director. This is her fifth year 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.

During this dynamic, high-energy program, young innovators will:

• Dive into cutting-edge ocean research as they adopt their own robotic fish, design and patent aquatic plants, and take their fish friend home in a mini tank.

• Discover real space exploration technology when they create Spacepacks and Astro-Arm devices, mine an asteroid and observe erupting ice volcanoes.

• Combine science and art to build their own robotic artist, engage in design thinking, make spin art and learn how inventions can change the way people create.

• Experiment with the fun of physics, engineering and gaming as they design, build and test their own mega marble arcades.
