In partnership with the National Inventors Hall of Fame, the Dorset School will host the nationally-acclaimed Camp Invention for children entering grades one to six. This week-long summer adventure explores the connections between science, technology, engineering and innovation. Children will work together to seek solutions to real-world problems and sharpen critical 21st century learning skills while rotating through several fascinating hands-on activities. Young innovators will spend their time brainstorming product ideas, building original prototypes, exploring the lives of insects, animals and their environments, constructing and personalizing a DIY solar-powered cricket and discovering the science of slime, demolition, electronic sound and giant squids. Local educators work as camp instructors utilizing the vast resources of the National Inventors Hall of Fame. They are currently accepting applications for enthusiastic high school students to serve as Leadership Interns and middle school students who can take part as Counselors in Training. Registration includes a T-shirt. Visit campinvention.org or contact local camp director, Nate Merrill, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 802-362-2606, extension 126.
