As a stroke survivor, I love informal science... it is all about giving students materials and seeing what they can do with them, this is now what I do on a daily basis!
I have trainings with teachers and show them how to do STEM activities with their youth, such as Balloon-powered cars, Balls and Tracks (or making roller-coasters), Straw Rockets and Cake Chemistry to name a few.
Well, I fell upon this video about a boy name Caine and as an educator I see it as a STEM video, it is fabulous and I share this with my trainees... but, as a stroke survivor, I see it very inspiring, this young boy from East LA takes the materials he has and makes an awesome arcade, it did not go above his means and triumphed using his own skills. I am moved my Caine, his imagination, passion and ability to try new things.
I hope you are moved by the Caine's Arcade video also! I love it and glad this film maker found Caine and his cardboard arcade.
