GCC 4th Global Cardboard Challenge inspires creativity Oct. 7
Get your kids off their tablets and encourage them to crawl through and play in a cardboard wonderland during the Guam Community College Education Department's 4th Annual Global Cardboard Challenge Saturday, October 7, 2017 from 9:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. in the GCC Multipurpose Auditorium.
“GCC's Education Department welcomes all ages to come and interact with the cardboard creations and get inspired," said Dr. Marsha Postrozny, Education Department chair. “We want our children to realize that they can create playthings that are just as fun and probably even more beneficial to them without the use of technology,” she said.
“The Cardboard Challenge encourages your child(ren) to imagine they are flying a rocket ship, living in a castle, driving a race car, flying in a time machine – whatever they can dream up. Parents can interact with them in a non-technological setting through games, models, dramatic play, and a make-it-take-it station,” said Dr. Postrozny.
GCC students in various postsecondary programs and GW high school students in the GCC CTE Early Childhood Education program are designing playhouses and other imaginative items out of cardboard for this free event. A special section at the Cardboard Challenge will allow children to design and decorate their own items.
The Global Cardboard Challenge was inspired by the film, ‘Caine’s Arcade,’ and has turned into an annual global event presented by the Imagination Foundation to celebrate child creativity and the role communities can play in fostering it.
