Spring Cardboard Challenge set for May 20
Posted on May 15, 2014
Movement science students will create cardboard games the campus community can play while raising money for a nonprofit organization.
The Cardboard Challenge is set for Tuesday, May 20, from 10-11:30 a.m. at the Cook Carillon Tower; rain location is Kirkhof Center lobby.
Inspired by the short film, “Caine’s Arcade,” the Cardboard Challenge, an initiative of the Imagination Foundation, is a worldwide celebration of child creativity and the role communities can play in fostering it. This year’s challenge aims to engage 1 million children in 70 countries in creative play.
For the challenge, students build simple arcade games out of cardboard, recycled materials and imagination.
A fun pass to play is $1. John Kilbourne, professor of movement science, said the cardboard challenges in the fall and winter semesters raised $350 for the Imagination Foundation.
