Camp Invention

We have a Supercharged™ week in store for your children this summer! Camp Invention will be held at Dakota Valley Middle School Nylen Science Center the week of June 10th-14th from 9:00 AM – 3:30 PM with all new programming for an exciting adventure!  It’s for all students that will be going into K-6th grades in the fall of 2019.

In this year’s program, students will:

  • Create a device to retrieve stolen ideas and, in the process, learn about the importance of intellectual property and the patent system in Innovation Force®.
  • In Deep Sea Mystery, children will embark on a research adventure at sea and invent island-survival tools and underwater equipment used to better study marine life.
  • Program a robot to conduct the practical tasks of running a farm and explore the power and efficiency of automated tasks in the Farm Tech module.
  • In DIY Orbot, children explore frequency, circuit boards, motors and gears as they use real tools to reverse engineer a remote-controlled robot.
