What is Professor Qwbli's Cardboard Challenge?

Professor Qwbli's Cardboard Challenge is an official Global Cardboard Challenge event, which was inspired by the short film, ‘Caine’s Arcade.' Professor Qwbli’s has teamed up with Makedo & Imagination Foundation to celebrate student creativity and the role communities can play in fostering it.

Through Professor Qwbli's Cardboard Challenge kids will learn a host of 21st century skills and attitudes, like critical thinking, resourcefulness, perseverance and teamwork. It's an opportunity for kids to let their imaginations run wild, explore their passions and discover new ideas.

It is also an opportunity for the community to support  student creativity by becoming a sponsor, volunteer or by donating materials.

The Challenge

Professor Qwbli’s Cardboard Challenge uses PLAY and the Design Cycle to empower & inspire kids to dream, take chances, and create the things we imagine… these are the skills of entrepreneurs, innovators and change makers.

Each week students will work together (project-based learning) though the Design Cycle to meet that week’s challenge.

If they can think it, they can build it!


Succeeding in the 21st-century means learning how to think, not what to think.


Through hands-on practical problem solving, interdisciplinary learning and the development of transferable skills, your child can imagine a world of boundless opportunities.

“Every child is a creative innovator from birth. It is how learning takes place. The goal of education should be to sustain and empower that sense of wonder through adulthood. Creativity is the means by which difficult problems are solved. Practicing creative thinking ensures our capacity to bring real solutions to our world.”
— Rob Hansen, The Leelanau School
