Dare ProtoPlay Cardboard Challenge
Part of the Imagination Foundation’s 2015 Global Cardboard Challenge
13-16 Aug (11am-3pm)
A video game starts from an idea. The idea can be developed through cutting up paper boxes. Inspired by 9-year old Caine's game arcade, Global Cardboard Challenge will challenge you to create a game arcade using paper boxes.
We join Imagination Foundation's mission to find, foster and fund creativity and entrepreneurship in children around the world to raise a new generation of innovators and problem solvers who have the tools they need to build the world they imagine.
The event is open to kids aged below 15. Kids must be accompanied by parents and guardians who do not require tickets to get in.
