Description

This is a camp designed by you—the Inventor! Each day you’ll be given a series of challenges which must be overcome
using basic materials, simple machines, tips from world famous inventors and the most important thing of all – your mind. If
you were stranded on a desert island how would you survive? You will need to build shelter, find food and purify water,
protect yourself and your teammates from the elements and find a way off the island – or die trying (not really). Journey to
the future and examine the ultramodern inventions of the 23rd century. Then design the future - today. "Create" light sabers,
“green energy”, and hovercraft. With a little bit of ingenuity you’ll construct catapults and forts and then lay siege, fabricate
a winning Egg Drop design, construct a dancing robot and assemble a Salt Water Fuel Cell Car to take home.
While Thomas Edison said invention is 10% inspiration and 90% perspiration, this camp is 100% fun!
