You might not think it’s possible to create a spaceship, a flying car, twin leopard geckos and a “super-duper” computer all in a day’s work, but that’s exactly what kids at Club Invention did last week and then some. “The overall point of the program is to show kids that they can do things too,” said Melanie Konstandakis, director of the week-long summer camp at Pierce Elementary School. “It’s not just up to adults to figure everything out.” The enrichment program, developed by Invent Now Kids, an Ohio-based nonprofit, drew more than 100 local kids, mostly from Arlington, going into grades one through six. It’s aimed at making science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) more fun for elementary school students through hands-on learning and creative thinking, and it seems to be working.
