Inspiring Fearless Innovators
Be a part of something bigger
Prepare to play at a carnival you create yourself in this weeklong class. The Galileo Carnival is in town—all that’s missing are the games! Learn paper construction and simple drawing techniques to make a new inventive, endlessly engaging amusement every day of the week.
Take a walk on the wild side with two animal-themed attractions: a silly creature cutout board for taking photos and an animal-shaped ring toss. Craft straw and paper darts to throw through a hoop target, then BE DETERMINED to test your non-pointy projectiles until they achieve a straight, accurate flight. Learn paper crafting and taping tricks as you build a one-of-a-kind ball-in-a-basket game. Wrap up your carnival collection with a fishing game, powered by magnets and embellished with appealing patterns. BE REFLECTIVE as you improve each of your inventions with rules and point systems of your own playful design.
Note: This weeklong class is more than just innovation-igniting projects—it’s an immersive experience full of delightful details, including interactive games, silly traditions, snacks (see Materials, below) and dress-up days designed to build community, bolster confidence and deliver loads of camp-away-from-camp fun.
* See your welcome email after you enroll for more detailed material lists broken out by day.
The last step in the Galileo Innovator’s Process is SHARE. Great learning can come from sharing successes and failures—to solidify your own experience as an innovator and to inspire others.
