Saturday, January 24 marked the beginning of something big at ISG Dammam! Families at work tables, cardboard, recyclables, and imaginations came together to create an incredible cardboard arcade. After designing and building more than a dozen games, families had fun playing each other’s games and making new friends.
This enjoyable activity was inspired by the YouTube Video Cade’s Arcade about a 9 year old boy who spent the summer building cardboard arcade games in his father’s shop. Caught on camera, Cade’s video has inspired hundreds of similar events and an international organization called Imagination.org which sponsors the Global Cardboard Challenge each October.
Look at the wonderful time these families had creating together! What a great way to involve families in the Maker movement! Maybe this will spread throughout the community. In any case, let’s work together to make this an annual event!
