MATOON — The Lake Land College Center for Business and Industry will be hosting Camp Invention’s 2021 children’s camp pro- gram “Recharge!” July 12 through 15 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The program offers chil- dren entering grades kinder- garten through sixth grade the opportunity to experi- ence innovative and hands- on STEM activities.
In the confidence-building activities, campers will be able to discover sound waves in action via reverse engi- neering as well as marketing inventions of their own designs as creative entrepre- neurs
Throughout the high-ener- gy persistence activities, par- ticipants will build and test a launching device to navi- gate challenges while explor- ing physics concepts such as trajectory and velocity.
Campers will experiment with circuits and energy in the creativity activities, cre- ating a robotic, solar-pow- ered cricket inspired by bio- mimicry. The campers will then learn how to utilize empathy and creative prob- lem solving to create cus- tomized habitats.
During the problem-solv- ing activities, campers will learn about how to adapt to surroundings by designing and prototyping a nature- inspired morphing vehicle to submerge, soar or sprint in the Super Road Rally.
The cost to attend is $240 per child. For questions or to register, visit invent.org/camp or call 800- 968-4332.
