Hong Kong Young Makers Cardboard Arcade Challenge

Hong Kong, Hong Kong

Hong Kong

“Don’t just play games; make your own games!”

Young Makers & ChangeMakers (YMCM) is an inclusive education platform and community to foster young maker mindsets and 21st century skills.

In addition to organising Hong Kong’s annual MakerCamp since 2014, YMCM has organised workshops at Maker Faire Hong Kong on internet-of-things and 3D printing, a Star Wars Hour of Code with Hong Kong Disneyland, Mini Young Makeathons to design and prototype for smart homes, and exhibited at the Global Fab Festival in Shenzhen.

We invite Hong Kong young makers for an afternoon of creative play using recycled cardboard and more at the Jockey Club Innovation Tower generously provided by PolyU School of Design. Young makers will have the opportunity to share their creations with family and friends, and some arcade games may be selected to be exhibited at Maker Faire Shenzhen in October 21-23 to share with the rest of the world!

Inviting The World To Play

The Global Cardboard Challenge began in 2012, following the overwhelming success of the short film, 'Caine's Arcade'. In 2017, we hope to surpass 1 million child participants!


Inspired by the short film, ‘Caine’s Arcade,’ the Global Cardboard Challenge is an annual event presented by the Imagination Foundation that celebrates child creativity and the role communities can play in fostering it. This September, kids of all ages are invited to build anything they can dream up using cardboard, recycled materials and imagination. Then on Saturday, October 7th, 2017, a day that commemorates the flash mob that made Caine's day in the short film, communities come together and play!
