Northfield Public Schools staff members may register their children for the Camp Invention STEM enrichment day camp and receive a $30 discount for each child. Staff using this discount must provide their district email address when registering and also pay the $5 per student fee. Register with the form or online, using the promotional code “HOST.”
Camp Invention will be held from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on June 23 through 27 (Monday through Friday) at Bridgewater Elementary School. Local educators will lead youth, entering grades 1 through 6, in hands-on activities that require teams to solve real-world challenges.
Activities will include:
- Exploring the science behind the five senses to design a bionic ear, eye and hand
- Experimenting with circuits and gears
- Creating your own invention
- Building a motorized “morphing” vehicle (to take home!)
- Designing an epic, insect-themed pinball machine
The program is presented in partnership with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.
