catapults and forts, construct working light sticks to
take home and assemble a set of circuits with
batteries and light bulbs. They review technological
advances in flight and work together to produce
improved airplane designs. These future inventors get
a lesson on lasers, build a light stick and work on
protecting a spaceship from damaging space rays.
They then step into space by launching air powered
rockets and loading a payload capsule puzzle. The
children prepare a patent proposal and receive a
patent certificate at the end of the camp. While

90% perspiration,” this camp is 100% FUN!
