Come get your hands dirty in our Inventor's Workshop!  We will spend the week tinkering, building, and creating as we explore the invention process from start to finish.  Find out how to use tools, create electrical circuits, fix broken objects, and take apart devices from clocks to cellphones to see what makes them tick!

In Inventor's Workshop, campers will: 

• Explore a new inventor and their inventions every day, from ancient inventor's such as Archimedes, to recent technology from Tesla.

• Create your own battery, electrical switch, and circuit to carry energy and get your invention moving!

• Build robots of different kinds to complete challenges and help with everyday tasks.

• Experiment with alternative energy sources such as wind and solar power. 

• Design your own invention and build a prototype to take home.

Participants must bring their own nut-free lunch and snack.  A complimentary pizza lunch will be provided on the last day of the camp. 

This is a drop-off program. Participants and one caregiver are invited to explore the Lab after camp hours free of charge. Additional family members may purchase their General Admission ticket at the door or in advance. Children must be accompanied by an adult while enjoying the Lab exhibit areas.

Member discounts are applied at checkout.
