Inventions/Innovations – 2015

 2015 Science Summer Camp for 4th -5th graders – classes filled with a waitlist.  

Students decided on a problem they wanted to solve and figured out their own inventions to address it.  Utilizing the facilities on campus, (classrooms, computer and science labs, the observatory, etc.), students analyzed how inventions impact our lives and worked through the processes for  developing their own ideas, presenting their product designs to an academic “Shark Tank” at IWU.

3D printing

With eight (8!) 3D printers available, our Young Scholars will have more opportunities to explore computer/product interfaces, design elements, etc.

Young Inventors (4th and 5th graders in the Inventions/Innovations Camp) will be approaching 3D printing from an Invention perspective, designing their own creations to address a problem they identify. 3D printing will be incorporated as they consider the whole invention process from design, cost analysis, prototyping, and testing.
