  3. Camp Invention
Multiple locations and weeks available all summer!

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 exploration of science, technology, engineering and more!
Children rotate through a variety of hands-on activities each day while collaborating with friends to think creatively and
invent their own solutions to real-world challenges.

The 2021 program lineup is the best yet, so whether your child is a new or returning camper, they are in for an amazing week full of new discoveries and a-ha moments!

During this energizing program, young innovators (aka campers) will:

• Design morphing vehicles to travel across land, then find inspiration in nature to
add prototype elements for moving through air and water.
• Experiment with fun physics concepts like trajectory and velocity as they build, test
and modify a device to launch rubber ducks to reach international landmarks.
• Make and adopt their own robotic crickets and apply empathy to build customized
habitats and protective gear for their solar-powered bots.
• Reverse engineer their own wireless microphone to discover sound waves, then use
their unique voice to create and promote an extraordinary invention.

Given the challenges presented by the pandemic, we are planning to run the 2021 Camp Invention
program in person and virtually, so you can choose the format that works best for your child. Even better, you have the
option to change your format selection up to six weeks before the program start date.
