What Will You Invent?

kidwithcardboardAre you in the long-winter doldrums? Are you interested getting sparking your students’ creativity and having a little fun at the same time? The Imagination Foundation’s 2016 Inventors’ Challenge may be just the thing for you.

The Imagination Foundation started with a chance encounter that resulted in the viral film Caine’s Arcade, the story of a young boy and his cardboard arcade. This led to the Global Cardboard Challenge and finally a foundation aiming to support creativity and entrepreneurship in children around the globe. From February 16-March 11, 2016, The Imagination Foundation is inviting students  to invent something “amazing, cool, maybe even a bit wacky” and then share it via Instagram and Twitter. If you’ve thought about working with inventions and never quite managed it, this might be the opportunity you’ve been looking for.

If you’d like to participate, you can register your class and receive a free Inventors’ Playbook to help you get started. You’ll even be eligible for prizes!

If your class or family participates, we’d love to hear what you do. It sounds like an adventure in creativity, to be sure.
