What is the Renaissance Innovation Lab?

The Innovation Lab is a special place for camper’s this summer. It is a place and space for the development of ideas and hands-on construction of everything from monorails, bridges, flying devices, roller coasters and more. We take the ideas of the past and combine the technology of the 21st century to give curious kids a place to invent, make and create, just like Leonardo did in days gone by.

Leonardo da Vinci was a Renaissance man and the original master of making and inventing. In this camp, expect to explore and invent a variety of interests while documenting ideas in a sketchbook. Leonardo’s life will inspire us to work together to design an exciting week filled with endless arts and science activities. This is a battery operated, construction, maker-friendly camp that will inspire your creative kid to build amazing creations by exploring materials and tools. Working in  our new Innovation Lab, campers   will build bots, use laser cutters, create LED flashlights, design egg drops and kinetic machines, and much more. We will use a variety of tools and construction tools that will ignite every camper’s passion and curiosity.

What is Mechanical Engineering?
Mechanical engineering may sound too complicated for kids, but it’s not. Kids love mechanical engineering because it’s all about machines. What kid doesn’t love exploring how something is made. Discovering what makes it move? Uncovering the secret of how something flies. Understanding what makes it go? Machines, from cars and trucks to pulleys and computers, are cool! The best way to introduce mechanical engineering to kids? A study of one of the greatest mechanical engineers ever, Leonardo da Vinci. 
 
One of the most fully achieved human beings who has ever lived, Leonardo da Vinci (1452–1519) is recognized the world over as a figure of infinite curiosity, feverish imagination and sublime artistic ability.” 
 
 Who knows – with this wide range of topics, your child just
may discover something of interest that he or she has never experienced! We can’t wait to guide your child in this new adventure!
