Camp Description

Kids have lots of great ideas. And we love ideas. This experience has been designed for students who will be entering 5th/6th grade in Fall 2017.

That's why we have created this two-day day camp experience where students (entering grades 5 and 6) will solve real-world problems by developing empathy, working in teams, building solutions, and reflecting. They will learn how to give their ideas shape, voice and wings.

Led by at team of local K -12 educators, students will work in small groups to collaboratively tackle problems that connect to both their lives and the world around them, answering questions like:

  • How might we redesign our recess experience?
  • How might we re-purpose scrap material from a local manufacturer?
  • How might we re-engineer a classroom to better meet our needs as students?

The camp will also include local mentors from industry and high school student coaches. There will be opportunities for students to engineer solutions in a 'maker's space' as they prototype and test their ideas. This is a great way for kids to stretch their thinking muscles this summer in a fun, collaborative, creative way as they harness the innovator within them!

Lunch and a light breakfast is provided both days.

Please join us!
