On October 11th Thomas Ringroses’s CAD for Architecture, Engineering, and Construction class held a Cardboard Arcade for fellow students to come enjoy and play.

The project that CAD for Architecture, Engineering, and Construction goes through is one of Ringroses favorites and he’s been doing it for ten years. 

“It’s a blast,” Ringrose said. “This is one of the things I look forward to all year long. It is one of my favorite projects I have kids do all year.” 

The project took the students around 3-4 days to build and almost everything was made with cardboard with the exception of some 3D printed items. 

The inspiration for this project came from “Caine’s Arcade” which was made by this 9 year old who created an arcade in his dad’s auto-body shop. Ringrose saw this as a perfect opportunity to create a fun project for his class. 

“The idea was let’s do something inexpensive and easy to create with to build and make,” Ringrose said.

Once their projects are finished, Ringrose invites students to come play the games and enjoy them.

“[The students] got really happy when they would play and it was fun seeing them happy,” senior Jennifer Rodriguez said.
