Camp Invention re-invents summer camp


WINONA, MN (WXOW) - A program in Winona is re-inventing summer camp.

‘Camp Invention' is a week-long session that immerses kids in science, engineering, and math.

The camp has been running at Winona State University for 10 years.

This year, kids ages six to twelve get hands-on experience inventing a ‘launchitude model'.

The goal is to use everyday objects to create a ‘duck chucking device' to launch the rubber duck ten feet into a pool of water.

Today teams begin the process of creating their launcher.

On Friday, the teams will get a chance to test their launchers.

This is the 10th year the camp has been at Winona State.

About 43 kids in total are participating.
