Building a Community of Creativity in Colorado
A group of third, fourth and fifth graders tentatively enter an activity room at the Institute of Science & Technology in Cherry Creek, Colorado. The room is a blank slate with bare white tables, white walls and a projector at the ready. Beth Cohen, a STEM teacher and Imagination Chapter leader, excitedly welcomes the children into the new Cherry Creek Imagination Chapter. The children’s parents are present for this first meeting and to kick off their time together, Cohen projects the short film Caine’s Arcade onto the screen. This is the film that inspired a worldwide movement of creativity, the launch of the Imagination Foundation and the 30 pilot Imagination Chapters now running across the globe.
