Camp Invention for summer of 2018!
Wild and crazy ideas become reality in this year's all-new Camp Invention program hosted at J.R. Baker Elementary! In this year's program called Fast Forward, campers in grades K-6 will explore technology behind self-driving cars and create vehicles of the future, build their very own "smart" homes, design a mechanical robot dog and take home an Optibot, a robot that senses dark and light surfaces. Some of Baker's very own teachers will lead the week of fun, hands-on, STEM activities that allow children to think big, explore their curiosity, and never give up! Early registration discounts are available, so don't  delay. Visit campinvention.org or call 800.968.4332 to register. Use promo code Ideas25 to save $25 (expires 03/23) or Ideas15 to save $15 (expires 5/4).
