The theme this winter at Inventor's Workshop is "Do-It-Yourself-Science". Each day we'll teach exciting science concepts which the campers will use to design and create their own contraptions and gadgets. Kids will have fun while learning about the basics of electricity, magnetism, energy, force and motion, gravity and simple machines. In addition to creating cool contraptions and games, we'll do fun art projects, play outdoors and watch science movies.


Featured Projects:

  • Wire up your own creations using lights, buzzers, and solar panels
  • Invent a two-player magnetic metal collector game
  • Design rubber band powered pull-and-spring art turntable
  • Construct a hydraulic powered machine
  • Create an acrobatic balancing toy
  • Explore conductivity with a salt water switch
  • Show off your skills with a mini-basketball catapult
  • Upgrade your game collection with an electric spinner
  • Build a car and race it around a custom track
