Invention Project I & II

 

Delta College Summer Camps is offering a unique STEM experience that reinforces critical skills over the summer months. We’re calling on young innovators to team up, turn heads, and take on the challenge. We’re asking them to invite their friends or make new ones to collaborate to bring inventions to life, build prototypes and learn real-world skills in fun, high-energy activities. By the end of the experience, participants will understand the business of inventing, from prototype to product launch.

 

Invention Project I

During Invention Project I, your middle school innovator will explore the edge of innovation and imagine the possibilities through dreaming, designing, engineering and making. Teams invent to light up their lockers, or maybe even light up an entire continent. Inventing is part 1. Bringing an invention to the world is part 2. Innovators are challenged to create new, inventive designs, but they must also consider principles of business such as rapid prototyping, market research, shipping, and profit. Inspiration floods forth as teams are virtually introduced to some of today’s greatest thinkers, inventors and entrepreneurs. Teams will meet Collegiate Inventors Competition Finalists and Winners, as well as National Inventors Hall of Fame (NIHF) Inductees, through personalized video challenges. Your innovator will brainstorm solutions to these challenges and push his or her ideas to the next level. Invention Project: where inventing just got real.

Invention Project II, is a one-of-a-kind experience created for 6th, 7th and 8th grade innovators. Newly acquired abilities will allow teams to research, pitch, and invest in a product while collaborating with fellow creative thinkers in a high-energy atmosphere! It all takes place in a supportive environment that inspires and supports individuality. Although the business deals are simulated, the skills and the friendships are all real. When Invention Project II comes to a close, there won’t be a patent — yet — but confidence gained can make anything possible in the future. Campers are encouraged to bring ideas and be ready to take dreams to the next level.
