Session One

Junior Inventors

Pre-K
What do all the great inventors have in common? Simple machines of course! Wheels, axles, screws, inclined planes, levers, wedges, and pulleys — they all make our lives easier and are the building blocks of great inventions. We will use all of these and our imaginations to design, create, and construct to make new and exciting engineering creations.

There are two sessions for this camp — AM camp is 9am-noon, and PM camp is 1-4pm.
