Camp Invention  

    Camp Invention® is coming to Sharon Elementary!


    In partnership with the National Inventors Hall of Fame® (NIHF), Sharon Elementary School is excited to offer the nationally acclaimed Camp Invention® program to children entering K through 6th grade. This inspiring, weeklong summer experience provides opportunities for open-ended, hands-on exploration of science, technology, engineering and more! Taking on a variety of exhilarating 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 17, 2024. The all-new 2024 program will spark the imagination of both new and returning campers with an adventure full of inspiration, innovation and unforgettable discoveries!


    During this action-packed, confidence-boosting program, young innovators will:


    • Develop their own sports ball and customize a light-up game with a unique brand and logo as they explore athletics, design and innovation


    • Discover the science of light through illuminating inventions and fluorescent animals, then build a one-of-a-kind Glow Box using circuitry and ultraviolet light


    • Embark on an epic global operation to tackle water challenges around the world, learning the role that water plays with the help of a robotic lab-on-wheels


    • Star as a contestant on a prototyping game show, molding and shaping ideas into awesome inventions using everyday items and a DIY toolbox

     challenge island

    Challenge Island is a unique program that provides STEAM enrichment in the form of summer camp right at your school! Students work in STEAM teams with other kids their age to conquer fun engineering challenges. This gives them the opportunity to learn about exciting new concepts while also acquiring important team work and social emotional skills!

    Challenge Island will be held at Sharon Elementary from July 8th-July 12th, 9:00 AM-2:00 PM. The theme is Mine Island- a kids choice favorite! Some activities include:


    • Forts- Students learn about medieval fortresses and create a 3-dimensional shelter for their STEAM teams!

    • Slingshots and Catapults- Students learn about elasticity, potential and kinetic energy while creating different types of launchers!

    • Rockets- Students learn about the different parts of a rocket and how they work together to make it aerodynamic. They then work with their teams to make Ender Dragon stomp rockets!

    • Slime- Students learn about polymers and non-newtonian fluids and make different types of slime!

    • Plankton- Students learn about bioluminescent plankton and create their own that can achieve neutral buoyancy!
