Inspiring Aspirations Media is one of 100 new sites selected
for the 2015-16 Imagination Chapters programme, an initiative of the
Imagination Foundation spearheaded by passionate educators and community
volunteers around the world.
Imagination Chapters are pop-up learning and makerspaces
that foster creativity, entrepreneurship and 21st century skills through
Creative Play. Chapters use a range of tools, materials and creative Play to
develop the natural powers of creativity, entrepreneurship and innovation that
all children possess.
Chapter activities can easily align to different themes,
subjects or content standards. The most engaging projects will spark from a
child’s interests. Simple projects may take two hours to complete; others may
take weeks. As projects become more advanced, kids will tackle real-world
issues. They will even kickstart business and social ventures.For
