Special to the Altus Times



The Stafford Air and Space Museum is offering an all new section of the nationally acclaimed Camp Invention program to children entering grades 1-6. The camp is slated for 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. July 11-15.

More than 40 students participated in the Stafford Museum’s June Camp Invention program called Epic and in July students can engage in the exciting new curriculum of Morphed.

Camp Invention is a weeklong summer adventure with lessons that explore connections between science, technology, engineering and innovation. Children can work together to seek solutions to real-world problems and sharpen critical 21st century learning skills while rotating through several fascinating modules. Tanner Wheeler will be returning as director of the Morphed program.

Young innovators spend their time:

* Designing a small, motor-powered vehicle to race during the Super Go Road Rally,

* Igniting a spirit of creativity and entrepreneurship through personalized video challenges presented by National Inventors Hall of Fame Inductees,

* Inventing bionic gadgets while journeying to acquire superhuman senses,

* Encountering illusions and discovering if they are a supertaster,

* Taking apart broken or unused appliances using real tools to develop something new.

All activities give participants the opportunity to create, explore and discover while having fun.

Local educators are slated to facilitate program modules and enthusiastic high school students are set serve as leadership interns ensuring that one staff member is in place for every eight children.

Every registration includes a complimentary Camp Invention T-shirt. Availability is limited, so visit www.campinvention.org or call 800-968-4332 to secure your child’s spot today.
