Participants will bring their problem-solving skills, and NuMinds will provide the cardboard, tape, and trinkets needed to fill the day with fun!

In this interactive workshop, students will learn by manipulating, creating and pondering in a series of labs inspired by one of our most ancient technologies: paper!

The centerpiece of the Cardboard Challenge is a design challenge. We'll go beyond the arcade games inspired by Caine's Arcade and tackle a brand new design challenge that will require some serious imagination and problem solving! We'll reinforce the principles of innovation and creative thinking in an epic maker-space laboratory.
