Hey there!

Well, I'm so glad we're here.  I'm excited to share about Generation Imagination.  It's a movement to help kids experience more play and creativity.

I'm thrilled to be a 2015 Imagination Chapter leader.  Do you remember hearing about Caine's Arcade - the young boy in East LA who had created a cardboard arcade at his dad's store?  The Imagination Foundation is the non-profit organization that came about after the explosive success of the video Caine's Arcade.  The group had 30 pilot chapters all across the world in 2014.  They have added 100 more for 2015.

Franklin Elementary is one of those chapters!  This is a natural fit after last year's involvement with SciGirls, the Hour of Code, and our new makerspace.

Come join us as we embark on this amazing journey!  We hope to be involved with littleBitsMakedoMakey Makey, and lots of other great groups. One of our first events will be the 2015 Global Cardboard Challenge in October.

For now, we'll leave you with this great video that gives you a better idea about what this is all about! Thanks for stopping by!  Come back soon, ya hear?
