Don’t say, “My child can’t do this.”
The open source community has made inaccessible, expensive software a thing of the past. New, free programs that expand our children’s horizons are popping up every day. One of the most recent developments has been in the realm of 3D modeling.
This one-day camp will introduce to students to SketchUp (formerly Google SkecthUp) to the basic concepts and tools, giving them the power to further their learning through exploration and online tutorials.
“SketchUp is 3D modeling software that’s easy to learn and incredibly fun to use. Download SketchUp today for free and get started drawing in 3D.”
With an understanding of 3D modeling, students will be able to take their Invention Convention or school projects to the next level. SketchUp software is free for student and is available on most popular platforms.

Games are to math as books are to reading.
Game play is one of the best ways to allow students to engage in the exploration of fundamental mathematical concepts. These concepts include one-to-one correspondence, pattern recognition, and computational strategies. These are just a few of the many benefits of game play.
This one-day camp will introduce students to two classical games Risk and Clue. The problem solving skills and logic required in these games will add to your student’s skill set and will build a life-long love for board games.
“Mathematics is a game played according to certain simple rules with meaningless marks on paper.”

“Aviation is the branch of engineering that is least forgiving of mistakes.”
Problem solving is a skill best learned by doing. For students to develop the ability to solve complex problems they must have the ability to think critically, work in teams, and be creative. Students will build on these skills all while tackling fun engineering challenges.
This one-day camp will introduce to students a number of different build challenges. Students will learn some basic engineering concepts, while pushing the importance of simply creating.
- Simple Machines
