The 2019 Innovation Academy takes place in the Inspiration Commons at Berwick Academy’s Jackson Library – a dynamic space where our community connects thru reading, writing, playing, designing, making and sharing. At Innovation Academy, participants build confidence in the process of fabricating creative solutions to problems through laser cutting, 3D printing, coding, soldering, sewing, and/or old fashioned woodworking/crafting skills. Each day kicks off with a collaborative design challenge where campers work in small teams to design and build structures to solve simple, fun problems (i.e. build a device out of paper to propel a ping pong ball forward, construct a parachute for a Star Wars action figure, or create a kinetic sculpture with hot wheels track and found objects). Collaborative design challenges are followed by morning and afternoon workshops facilitated by Berwick teachers and upper school student mentors.
