This October, kids of all ages are invited to build anything they can dream up using cardboard, recycled materials and their imagination. The event is free for participants and their parents, with creativity and Imagination the only requirement.

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.
