Uplift, Inc. Presents Invention Adventure, a Potential Geek Reality Show
Summon your inner geek with Invention Adventure, a reality webshow for potential geeks, chronicling the antics of individuals as they invent tools to survive a 'shipwreck.'
Unbeknownst to the students, their parents have agreed to allow their Suburban students, not accustomed to the urban jungle, to be shipwrecked on a real island. Students will be dropped off at the famed Detroit Belle Isle Park Beach with no way to return home. Students will need to create 5 survival tools to return home. We will see first hand if they have an inventive spirit to apply Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics (STEAM) skills they have learned.
Come laugh with us as we film this first group of unsuspecting students, potential geeks, as they scramble to hunt for supplies we have hidden on Belle Isle. Their journey will prove to generate a gut wrenching laughter as they utilize the hidden invention skills they have.
