Camp Invention is a hands-on science and creativity day camp where children learn while having fun. They survive on an alien planet, design roller coasters, crash-test new safety features for cars and skateboards using eggs and water balloons, take apart old appliances and create their own invention. Students participate in five classes each day, while experimenting with physics, engineering and creative problem-solving. The class is a nationally-acclaimed museum program presented by local educators. It will be held for students entering grades 1 to 6 from July 14 to 18, at Clarks Summit Elementary School, on Mondays through Fridays from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. To register, call 1-800-968-4332 or visit . Registration fee of $215 includes daily snacks and a camp T-shirt. Register online by January 3 to save $30. The program is hosted in collaboration with the National Inventors Hall of Fame and the United States Patent and Trademark Office.
