Cairo-Durham Elementary School is pleased to offer the nationally acclaimed program beginning on July 17, 2017 with Jared Fox serving as Director of the Launch program! We currently have 22 students registered but we are looking to reach a goal of 35 students by the end of the school year. 

An exciting, week-long summer adventure awaits children entering grades K-6 with activities that explore connections between science, technology, engineering, and innovation while sharpening their 21st century learning skills. Camp Invention allows children to experience real-world problem solving, creative thinking, invention, and teamwork while rotating through several fascinating modules inspired by the Inductees of the National Inventors Hall of Fame. 

Young innovators will:

  • Invent their own duct tape creations and pitch them to mock investors
  • Explore a distant new exoplanet and design inventions to create the next Earth
  • Launch water rockets, build Bubble Blasters, and engineer giant castles
  • Create their own personal, ultimate Spy Gadget Alarm Box by taking apart and upcycling everyday machines

All activities give participants the opportunity to explore, discover, and achieve while having fun!

Local educators will facilitate program modules and enthusiastic high school students will serve as Leadership Interns ensuring that one program team member is in place for every eight children.

Every registration includes a complimentary Camp Invention t-shirt. Click here to register for Camp Invention at Cairo-Durham Elementary
