Inspired by Caine's Arcade, the Raleigh 3rd, 4th and 5th graders designed and built arcade games using cardboard, tape, and a few other materials.  The group spent most of the first quarter working on their projects and got the chance to show off their creations at a Family Night of gaming and community building.

The students used all aspects of STEAM to get the job done. The night also featured a slideshow of what the kindergartners through 2nd grade have been working on.

If you are unfamiliar with Caine's Arcade, according to their website: 

9-year-old Caine Monroy spent his summer vacation building an elaborate cardboard arcade inside his dad’s used auto parts store. The entire summer went by, and he never had a single customer. But Caine didn’t give up. Then, on the last day of summer, filmmaker Nirvan Mullick walked in by chance to buy an auto part for his car. Caine asked Nirvan to play and the rest is history.  

Nirvan then created a documentary about Caine.
