The Art of Invention: Design Thinking & Creative Problem Solving

Middle School Mechanical Engineering Camp

This 4-day camp will introduce students to the steps that inventors and engineering designers use to imagine, create and quickly prototype innovative solutions to everyday problems. The hands-on approach will emphasize approaches to problem identification and problem solving along with a survey of tools such as need finding and empathy, brainstorming, synthesis, rapid prototyping, and visual communication. Students will work in teams to create and present their invention ideas.
