DIS hosted the 5th Annual Dorris Intermediate School Caine’s Arcade Cardboard Challenge and STEM Family Night where students used recycled materials and their imaginations to create games.
“Each year every student at DIS is invited to participate in this school wide challenge where they get to show off their imaginative designs and building skills,” says DIS STEM teacher Jason Watts.
What does that mean? Using various – mostly free – materials the students find around their house they create imaginative and challenging games for everyone to play. The designs incorporate things like cereal boxes, milk bottles…anything they can reuse.
Watts reports, “This was the biggest Caine’s Arcade yet. STEM Rocks at DIS!”
The night is based on the extraordinary story of a boy named Caine Monroy who created his own arcade out of cardboard.
