In partnership with Invent Now, Arlington Public Schools is pleased to offer the nationally-acclaimed Club Invention program to children entering grades one through six. This exciting, weeklong summer adventure in creativity immerses children in imaginative play that reinforces and supplements school-year learning in the subjects of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). Children will work together to seek innovative solutions to real-world problems and sharpen critical 21st century learning skills such as teamwork and creative problem solving as they rotate through four modules each day that disguise learning as fun.
This exciting week of four fun-filled modules begins on June 25, when Melanie Konstandakis will direct the Club Invention ENVISION program at Bishop School. In the Inventeureka™ module, children will venture on the Ci6000 Space Modulator Time Machine for a fantasy adventure. Children will build their own inventions and learn to adapt certain features for various situations. Participants spend their time navigating an island via upcycled ships and learning the power of combining magnetism and electricity during the Magnetropolis™ module. In the I Can Invent: Balloon Burst™ module, children will design balloon bursting machines, while learning the importance of gears, motors, springs, and magnets. Finally, in the Action and Adventure Games™ module, a participant favorite, children will combine physical activity and creativity during fun, energetic games. Games are based on children’s ages and ability.
Local educators will facilitate program modules, and enthusiastic high school and college students will serve as Leadership Interns – ensuring that one staff member is in place for every eight children.
