The Edison Ford traveling exhibit will be on display in the Caretakers house beginning February 11, and will show some of the history, heritage, and modern-day views of Florida through the eyes of the two famous winter residents, Thomas Edison and Henry Ford. This exhibit presents a comprehensive look at "old Florida" in the time of Edison and Ford (1885-1940's) and the contemporary Florida landscape.
Act, direct, operate the camera, and build sets. Campers will be fully immersed in the art of film making. Participants will study Foley art (sound effects), movie magic (special effects), and script writing. Campers will understand the basic techniques the pros use to get their ideas on the big screen. Every camper will receive a DVD of their final film.
"To be a good inventor you need a good imagination and a pile of junk," said Thomas Edison. The Edison Ford will supply the junk and jump start the imagination. Campers will use recycled materials and develop green inventions, conduct science experiments, participate in balloon car races, build bridges and more.
Get up and start moving while we have fun with physics through mini-golf, rocket cars, slinky sound effects and other challenges that excercise the mind and body. This camp will explore the world large and small, from atoms to outer space. Learning was never this much fun!
Have fun expressing yourself through multiple mediums like legos, post-its, and organic environmental materials. Let your creativity take over while exercising the right side of your brain to learn to see as artists. Friday graduation will be a celebration of creativity with the Edison Inventor's Summer Camp Art Exhibition 2013.
