During the week of August 10 – 14, Massapequa High School – Ames Campus was the place to be as the district hosted its second year of Camp Invention. The engaging science program offered students opportunities to think creatively, and explore and imagine during a fun-filled, hands-on week of activities provided by the Long Island Science Center and facilitated by district educators.
During Camp Invention 2009, students enjoyed a broad range of activities that included a Viking Treasure Trek and units on Comic Book Science, Fantasy Inventions and Complicated Machines. A favorite among campers was Land Sled X-treme, during which students worked collaboratively to design and test a functional land sled. In addition to an enriching academic experience, students benefited socially as they met new friends and reunited with their peers from last summer’s camp for another week of fun through science.
