Children team up with the Innovation Force®, a group of NIHF Inductees who have been transformed into superheroes, to battle the evil Plagiarizer, a supervillain who is out to steal the world’s ideas. As children create a device to retrieve the stolen ideas they, learn about the importance of intellectual property and the patent system.

Children embark on a research adventure at sea to dig up fossils, but they soon find themselves stranded on an island. Using lessons and advice from our Inductees, children invent island-survival tools and underwater equipment. Sumita Mitra, dental innovator, and Stan Honey, master navigator, guide participants through exciting activities.

Children are put in charge of managing their own farm as they learn the basics of running a business. With the assistance of Bot-ANN-E robot, campers learn fundamental coding techniques to maximize their time and profits. Inductee Marvin Caruthers, inventor of the method to chemically synthesize DNA, joins the fun and introduces students to DNA synthesis, while children perform their own mock DNA experiment to check the health of their newly purchased cattle.

Children explore frequency, circuit boards, motors and gears as they use real tools to reverse engineer a remote-controlled robot. Throughout the week, campers will adapt their DIY Orbot to perform increasingly challenging tasks from sports to art.
