DIY Science Camp: Be an Inventor!

Inventors are creative problem solvers and can think flexibly, finding new ways to connect ideas. Strengthen creative thinking and problem-solving skills by giving kids interesting challenges — like how to make a robot that can draw, or how to build a stable structure out of gumdrops. And try your hand at Chinese tangrams: how many different objects can you make with all the shapes? Explore the fun activities below plus lots of great fiction and nonfiction books for young inventors.
