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.
