BERKELEY HEIGHTS, NJ - In partnership with the National Inventors Hall of Fame, Berkeley Heights Public Schools is pleased to offer the nationally-acclaimed Camp Invention program to children entering grades one through six. It’s an exciting, weeklong summer adventure in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) that’s all about big ideas. Children will work together to seek innovative solutions to real-world problems and sharpen critical 21st century learning skills as they rotate through four modules that reinvent summer fun.
This unforgettable week begins on July 14, 2014, when Andrea Masri will direct the Camp Invention MORPHED!™ program at Columbia Middle School.
In the Super Go™ module, students design a small, motor-powered vehicle that zooms! Girls and boys will collect energy coins along the way for building ramps, bridges and tunnels for the Super Go Road Rally.
Participants will receive personalized challenges from National Inventors Hall of Fame Inductees that will ignite a spirit of creativity, innovation and entrepreneurship during the Design Studio: Morphed™ module.
Throughout the Amplified™ module, children invent bionic gadgets while journeying to acquire superhuman senses. Time will be spent encountering illusions and discovering if they are a supertaster.
Finally, Camp Invention’s flagship module, I Can Invent: Pinbug™, allows participants to use tools to upcycle electronics and build an epic, insect-themed pinball machine!
Local educators will facilitate program modules and enthusiastic high school and college students will serve as Leadership Interns – ensuring that one staff member is in place for every eight children.
