For children entering grades 1-6 The Camp Invention program instills vital 21st century life skills such as problem-solving and teamwork through hands-on fun! Click here for more detailed information. Register today! Camp dates: June 23-27, 2013 Location: Held at Ridgewood Avenue School (corner of Bloomfield and Ridgewood Avenues in Glen Ridge)

The MORPHED program focuses on four modules that fit together: • Amplified™: In our Amplified module, your child will explore the dynamic realm of the five senses on a bionic adventure. She’ll join a research team and unlock clues to uncover nature’s blueprints, which hold the key to superhuman senses. To build essential STEM skills, she’ll develop bionic gadgets and explore sensory illusions. She’ll even shoot information down zip-lines to a bionic brain in a final challenge to decode a mega-sensory mix-up. Amplify your child’s senses in this sensational module! • I Can Invent: Pinbug™: Your child will take apart electronics to build an epic, insect-themed pinball machine in our I Can Invent: Pinbug module. He’ll use tools to uncover mechanical guts and upcycle them into bumpers, targets and scoreboards. Then he’ll angle his way into pinball physics, anatomy and math by propelling the ball onto the playfield with the ultimate DIY cardboard launcher and insect leg flippers to rack up points and win the Pinbug Jackpot.  Super Go™: Your child will create morphing vehicles that operate on land, in the air and underwater in our exciting Super Go module. He’ll utilize nature’s designs to explore energy, fuel, movement and animal features, and then he’ll apply these discoveries to motor-powered vehicles, in preparation for the Super Go Road Rally. Your child will build ramps, tunnels and high-speed STEM skills that put him on the fast track to success. • Design Studio: Morphed!™: Design Studio: Morphed! is a participant-led module that allows your child to invent and tinker with circuits and design solutions to nature-based challenges. As an entrepreneur, team leader and designer, she’ll work alongside other campers to bring her invention to market in an environment modeled after real-world research and development spaces. Your child’s imagination will be set free as she receives video messages sent by inventors from the National Inventors Hall of Fame and the Collegiate Inventors Competition.
