CAMP INVENTION FOSTERS CREATIVE THINKING

Camp Invention camper Grace O’Connor shows some of the inventions she created.Things were being invented at Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic School during the week of June 13. During that week, 22 first through sixth grade campers met for Camp Invention. Camp Invention is a day camp that introduces ideas on how to become an inventor and entrepreneur. The camp fosters hands-on, creative and innovative thinking, as the campers made simple inventions.

The campers were divided into a younger and older group. They used inventor’s logs and had access to an inventors supply room. They studied probability. They took apart a calculator and built prototypes for elevators and zip lines. They took part in a slime lab. The campers studied crickets and made solar-powered robotic crickets.

The campers’ parents and families visited at the end of the camp to see what the campers created that week.

Camp Invention was directed by teacher Nancy Laudeman and taught by teachers Jessica Patton and Molly Schwartz.
