POTTSTOWN PA – Camp Invention, the summer recreational program that teaches science, technology, engineering and math skills to children in grades 1-6, is returning to the greater Pottstown area June 24-28 (2013; Monday through Friday) from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. daily at the Pottsgrove School District’s Lower Pottsgrove Elementary School.
The program costs $225 for the week; a discount of $25 is available for those who register by March 28, and another $5 discount is offered to those who sign-up online, here. Enrollments are being accepted now for either program by calling 800-968-4332, or online here.
At Lower Pottsgrove, 1329 Buchert Rd., the June program features exploring the Earth’s geology, discovering treasure-filled caches around the world, taking apart old appliances to see how they work, using pieces to build a duck-chucking device, and investigating five extremes of the natural world … heat, height, crystals, water, and cold.
The week’s programs are taught by local certified teachers and are intended to expand a child’s creativity, inventive thinking and ability to solve real-world problems. Children are immersed into hands-on “learning disguised as fun” activities and work in teams to solve real-world challenges.
