The 17th annual Rocket to Creativity Camp will be held in the Killian Building on the campus of Western Carolina University. Rocket to Creativity will engage children in fun but challenging activities that promote creative thinking and problem-solving. Children who are rising 2nd graders through rising 9th graders may choose from a variety of projects that range from creating historical documentaries to creating costumes for science fiction films. There are interest groups at each grade level, including Crime Scene Investigation, The Inventors Club, Spy and Espionage, and Clown Around with Animation. Children will be working in small groups with a ratio 1:4, providing a personalized creative experience for each child. On Friday, parents are invited to a showcase of the creative projects developed during the week.
