This week’s I PROMISE School summer programming sees our students sparking their imaginations with the National Inventors Hall of Fame Camp. These STEM-focused lessons have our kids studying slime, channeling their inner-inventors and getting out of their seats in an active, hands-on, all-day learning setting. In addition to saving the world as self-made superheroes, they’ll be engaged in in-depth lessons including Lost Treasure where they’ll learn about volcanoes, create their own protective gear, and complete challenges to find a hidden treasure, all while learning how to write their very own adventure stories.
They’ll also manage their own farms and perform DNA experiments with assistance from a programmable robot that will teach them fundamental coding techniques and the basics of running a business. The week’s lesson plans also include exploring frequency, circuit boards, motors and gears as the students reverse-engineer a remote-controlled “Orbot.” They will program their orbots to complete increasingly challenging tasks as they go along, ranging from sports to art activations.
