Description

Be inspired by the most famous inventors in history - Ben Franklin, the Wright Brothers, Leonardo da Vinci, Rube Goldberg! - and create your OWN inventions! Use their techniques to break through a series of modern day challenges. You will learn how to invent solutions and make them come to life, just like these legendary innovators did. Construct catapults and forts, design underwater vehicles, build a mini-amplifier, and assemble a working light saber to take home. Thomas Edison said invention is 10% inspiration and 90% perspiration, but this camp is 100% fun.
