What are we doing?
During our summer 2019 session, we are bringing Project Invent to Do Space. In Project Invent, jr. high and high school students spend the summer inventing technologies to solve real-world problems. In the process, students learn to use design thinking and engineering as tools for problem solving. More information about Project Invent can be found at www.projectinvent.org
When is it?
Our summer session will be held over twelve Saturdays from 1-3PM starting on June 8th with the last meetup on Saturday August 24th. At our first meetup on June 8th, we are having a kick-off event that will introduce the participants to Project invent. Light snacks will be provided.
Who can apply?
Anyone between the ages of 12 to 18 who is interested in inventing technologies that solve real-world problems encouraged to apply. Twelve applicants will be accepted for the upcoming Summer 2019 session.
