Trains, planes, and automobiles… who came up with those? Who invented the Morse code, electric light, and oscillating frequencies for secure communications? The WHAT frequencies for WHICH? And, what about the ice cream cone and peanut butter? Who thought of those delicious things? Who invented the cell phone? These things had to come from somewhere, so let’s find out who created them. They were all invented by inventors who were… inventive! That’s a mouthful. Come along and we’ll travel to a time before people knew how to fly! There is a saying, “Necessity is the mother of invention,” and that’s really true. When we needed to count enormous numbers and synthesize a lot of information, we invented the computer. The earliest machines took up an entire room, and today, we put computers in our pockets. It’s a good thing they shrunk! When President Kennedy decided we needed to go to the moon, “not because it’s easy, but because it’s hard” we built a rocket to get there. There were no rocket stores that stocked the go-to-the-moon model! Someone had to invent a rocket that could reach the moon. You get the idea! Inventions is about the people “who thought of that.” Who knows… maybe you are one of those people, because there are plenty more things to invent!
MCT’s Inventions is a day camp focused on growing students theatrical skills with all of the fun of a performance as well! Students will gather in the mornings in a classroom like setting to learn the art of music, movement and acting. This camp runs Monday-Friday, 9AM-5PM, August 16-20 and will culminate with two performances on Friday at 4PM and 6 PM.
