Caine’s Arcade Outing – September 13, 2019
September 13, 2019 Meet-up in Middleboro and South Hadley
On Friday, September 13, GCVS students and their families met up with teachers and staff in Middleboro and in South Hadley to learn about Caine’s Arcade and put their imaginations to work.
If you’ve never heard of Caine’s Arcade, here’s a little bit of backstory from the Caine’s Arcade website:
“In 2011, at the age of 9, Caine Monroy spent his summer vacation building an elaborate cardboard cardboard arcade in his dad’s used auto parts store in East Los Angeles. Caine loved arcades, and dreamed of the day he would have lots of customers come play. He spent months building and preparing his arcade, perfecting his game design, making displays for prizes (his toy cars), designing elaborate security systems for his Fun Pass, making his own Caine’s Arcade STAFF shirt, and even hand labeling paper-lunch-bags for customers to carry home prizes.”
With what they learned about Caine and his cardboard arcade, they built games, puzzles, and more out of cardboard and recycled materials.
