Camp Invention

  • Camp Invention® is coming to Parma City School District!

    In partnership with the National Inventors Hall of Fame® (NIHF), Pleasant Valley Elementary School is pleased to offer the nationally acclaimed Camp Invention® program to children entering K through 6th grade. This exciting, weeklong summer adventure provides opportunities for open-ended, hands-on exploration of science, technology, engineering and more! Rotating through a variety of exciting activities each day, children have fun collaborating with friends, thinking creatively and inventing their own solutions to real-world challenges.

    The week begins on June 13, 2022 with Allison Kokely serving as Director. The all-new 2022 Explore program will thrill both new and returning campers with an expedition full of far-reaching explorations, fascinating discoveries and exhilarating “a-ha” moments!

    During this dynamic, high-energy program, young innovators will:

    • Dive into cutting-edge ocean research as they adopt their own robotic fish, design and patent aquatic plants, and take their fish friend home in a mini tank.
    • Discover real space exploration technology when they create Spacepacks and AstroArm devices, mine an asteroid and observe erupting ice volcanoes.
    • Combine science and art to build their own robotic artist, engage in design thinking, make spin art and learn how inventions can change the way people create.
    • Experiment with the fun of physics, engineering and gaming as they design, build and test their own mega marble arcades.
