Featured Program: InventionMakers!

Think about the phones we carry with us everywhere or the household appliances we use every day. Our world is wired with electronics. We cannot imagine life without these devices that someone had to imagine & make.


Now, your child can capture the creative power of making, designing and building their own electronic creations in our all new, InventionMakers afterschool enrichment lab series for your K-2nd and 3rd-4th graders.


First launched during our 2016 summer camps, our InventionMakers programs open the door to hands-on digital invention. Using our age-appropriate electronics building-systems, your child will engage the invention process, from first idea to functional product!


This Fall, we'll be offering the following seven-week Robots Are Coming! lab course, right here at Memorial School in North Haledon:

  • Everyday Inventions!: Your child can be an inventor! Utilizing the LittleBits electronic invention system, kids will design and create useful digital invention. Once they have their invention finished, they’ll have the opportunity to “pitch” it, Shark Tank-style to their fellow lab mates!--- for your Kindergarteners-2nd or 3rd-4th graders.
