Emily won the Best Design award in her age group for her battery-operated car. Everyone got a kit and tested different designs. Emily made more modifications at home. She preferred the spinning fan version over the rubber band axle version.
On the first day the kids got to take apart an electronic device brought from home to observe what was inside. Emily ended up needing the help of a sledge hammer to get inside her CD player (see above)! Then the kids took components from their devices and other "invention material" to create pinball machines with a bug theme. Emily won the drawing to be able to take her group's machine home. It actually worked!

We are so thankful for this amazing opportunity. Emily can't wait to go back next year! Below is a video with highlights and demonstrations.
