This camp is designed by you — the Inventor! Each day, you’ll face a series of challenges that must be overcome using basic materials, simple machines, tips from world famous inventors, and the most important tool of all: your mind. Construct catapults and forts, fabricate a winning egg drop design and assemble a working lightsaber to take home. Thomas Edison said that invention is 10% inspiration and 90% perspiration … but this camp is 100% fun!
