Mighty Makers Club
About Our Imagination Foundation Chapter
The Mighty Makers Imagination Chapter started in the fall of 2015 at the New Castle Branch Library. We are just one of 100 new global Imagination Chapters selected to launch this fall in cities around the world–including Kenya, Turkey, Italy, Singapore, and Mexico. The program is free, runs from mid-September to June, and is open to teens and tweens in our community. 
 
A little history on Imagination Chapters
Imagination Chapters, a program of the imagination Foundation, were launched out of the phenomenal public response to the short film, "Caine's Arcade" and the Global Cardboard Challenge, an annual global celebration of kid creativity and the role communities can play in fostering it.
 
Chapters are pop-up learning spaces led by adult volunteers that foster creativity and other 21st century skills through Creative Play. They're based on a learning model that was recently named Champion in LEGO's “Re-imagine Learning” Challenge and easily aligns with other STEM/STEAM, engineering and maker initiatives.
 
What will kids do in our Chapter?
In our Imagination Chapter, kids will do lots of building, making, designing, creative, collaborating and problem solving. Every week we will tackle different projects and activities with the goal of exploring a wide range of materials and concepts. The goal is to help kids become successful 21st century citizens who have the tools they need to build the world they imagine.
