IN THE GAME gives students the chance to be innovative all-stars as they engineer their own light-up ball game. After creating a unique sports ball,
they explore the physics of motion, then find out how to protect their ideas with intellectual property and reach the goal of being inducted into the Game of Fame!


In LET’S GLOW, students learn about biophysics, optics and electrical engineering as they discover illuminating inventions and engineer their own one-of-a-kind Glow Box. They investigate how light works in LEDs, fiber
optics and even glowing animals. With ultraviolet light, they uncover clues to reveal a mystery, using the power of light to help their ideas shine.

In OPERATION: HYDRODROP, students embark on an epic global operation to explore and solve water challenges around the world. They personalize
their own light-up robotic Lab-on-Wheels inspired by cutting-edge marine science technology. Using creative problem solving, they engineer solutions to filter and clean water, becoming hydro heroes.

Students star as game show contestants in PROTOTYPING STUDIO, where they embark on an innovative journey to discover the ultimate place
to invent. Equipped with a DIY toolbox, they generate new ideas, bringing them to life by transforming unique inventions. They collaborate with friends for rapid prototyping challenges, and learn that invention can happen anywhere.
