In partnership with the National Inventors Hall of Fame® (NIHF), Portland is pleased to offer the nationally acclaimed Camp Invention program to children entering kindergarten through sixth grade. This exciting, weeklong summer adventure provides opportunities for open-ended, hands-on exploration of science, technology, engineering and more! Rotating through a variety of exciting activities each day, children have fun collaborating with friends, thinking creatively and inventing their own solutions to real-world challenges. The all-new 2022 program will thrill both new and returning campers with an expedition full of far-reaching explorations, fascinating discoveries and exhilarating “a-ha” moments!
During this dynamic, high-energy program, young innovators will:
• Dive into cutting-edge ocean research as they adopt their own robotic fish, design and patent aquatic plants, and take their fish friend home in a mini tank.
• Discover real space exploration technology when they create Spacepacks and AstroArm devices, mine an asteroid and observe erupting ice volcanoes.
• Combine science and art to build their own robotic artist, engage in design thinking, make spin art and learn how inventions can change the way people create.
• Experiment with the fun of physics, engineering and gaming as they design, build and test their own mega marble arcades.
