Event description

Description

Kids of all ages (and their families) are invited to build something amazing out of cardboard, recycled materials and imagination! This event kicks off this school year’s STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) initiative and Maker Movement, an integral part of our 2016-18 curriculum plan. It is also part of the Imagination Foundation’s 2016 Global Cardboard Challenge, inspired by ‘Caine’s Arcade’.

Why Participate?

The Make and Play Day - Global Cardboard Challenge gives children an opportunity to collaborate, learn, and build the things they imagine through a simple process called Creative Play. The Challenge lets children explore their interests and passions; teaches critical thinking, resourcefulness, perseverance, teamwork and other 21st century skills; and brings communities together to foster and celebrate child creativity!

What to Bring?

Your imagination….

We'll have some material on-hand. If you can, please bring used cardboard boxes (big & medium sizes), paper towel and toilet paper tubes, egg cartons, tape (duct, masking, packing), and scissors.
