CCSD Offers Summer Science Enrichment Opportunities

Camp Invention 2018

Chillicothe City Schools will be hosting Camp Invention for students graduating from grades 1-6.  The camp will be held at Chillicothe Middle School June 4th - 8th (9 a.m. to 3 p.m.).  There is an enrollment fee for Camp Invention: $25 for CCSD students and $50 for other students. Enroll your student early to ensure their spot is reserved.

This year’s Fast Forward Curriculum features several video challenges from Inventor's Hall of Fame Inductees: these encourage children to be confident in their ideas and explore their innovativeness. All activities are hands-on: 

  • Optibot™: Campers will launch into the future with their own Optibot — a small self-driving robot that senses changes in light.
  • Robotic Pet Vet™: Throughout this module, campers nurse their robotic puppy back to health and design and build dog parks as they hammer out ideas for the best park attraction.
  • Mod My Mini Mansion™: Campers will dream up and design their very own futuristic smart home filled with gadgets, LEDs, technology and innovations!
  • Stick To It™: Campers will invent something new every day as they explore what it is like to be a physicist, engineer and entrepreneur. Young innovators will invent, make and craft solutions to real-world challenges by building their own prototypes and discovering that anything is possible.

At the end of the program, each camper will bring home two personalized robots! Learn more about this year’s all-new curriculum.  

Registration flyers are available at all CCSD elementary schools.  For more information contact Joyce Braunlin, at the Board Office. 740-775-4250, ext 16115 or email her at Joyce.Braunlin@ccsd.us.
