Students entering grades K-6 will have an opportunity to create an ultimate spy gadget alarm box, explore a distant exoplanet and launch water rockets during a special summer camp for Homer School District 33C students.


The district is partnering with the National Inventors Hall of Fame to bring the nationally-acclaimed Camp Invention program back to Hadley Middle School in mid-June. Click here to view the flier.


The program is open to all Homer 33C students entering grades K-6.


“We’re pleased to offer a weeklong summer adventure with lessons that explore connections between science, technology, engineering and innovation,” said Hadley Middle School Dean of Students/Discovery Program Coordinator Jeanine Arundel who is organizing this year’s Camp Invention.


“Children will work together to seek solutions to real-world problems and sharpen critical 21st century learning skills while rotating through several fascinating modules,” she added.


The weeklong program begins June 12 and concludes June 16. Modules include:


Duct Tape Billionaire™

We’re looking for a risk-taking, duct-taping dynamo to start the next big accessory business! Your child will experience invention with a twist in Duct Tape Billionaire. Children can choose to explore their imaginations and invent from scratch, or they can select a basic design to make their own. They explore patents, hear how to launch a business, and present their products to mock investors.


Mission: Space Makers™

This mission takes your child out of this world to locate and prepare a new planet for human habitation. Mission Control sends teams challenges to design inventions that transform the atmosphere, terrain and ecosystem of an exoplanet. They set up a Space Lab to hatch eggs and grow crystal trees. Take on the jobs of tomorrow and explore beyond our galaxy.


Have A Blast™

Your child will fling, fly and float through high-energy air battles while using physics to boost their advantage. Children engineer a variety of working tools, including “snowball” throwers, a giant air cannon and more. Everyone builds their own high-tech Bubble Blaster with flashing lights to take home. This summer, Have A Blast that will last a lifetime.


Operation Keep Out™

A young inventor’s dream come true, children create the ultimate Spy Gadget Alarm Box to keep treasures secure. First, they must decode a note written in invisible ink, take apart worn out electronics and then wire their own unique Alarm Box. The objective in Operation Keep Out is to become an electrical engineering super spy!


The price to participate is $225. Those who register before May 1 and use the promo code DISCOVER15 will receive a $15 discount.
