Paso Robles 5th graders create cardboard arcade

Posted: Updated:

Fifth grade kids at St. Rose Catholic School in Paso Robles are bringing back the arcade. 

Theirs is made out of cardboard. 

Matthew Carlson and his classmates built it as a class project. 

"I pull this string up and the ball will fall down the inclined plane," Carlson said. 

The arcade is complete with games, tickets and prizes. 

"We had a lot of cutting to do and a lot of tape," said student Ryan Dennish. "We probably went through about four or five rolls of tape." 

Students like Megan Souza utilized math and problem solving skills to build the arcade. 

"We had to do a lot of measuring to see what fits and what doesn't fit," she said. 

Teacher Hannah Heitzig says she came up with the idea after showing her students a YouTube video called "Caine's Arcade." 

The boy in the video builds his own cardboard arcade in his dad's auto shop and started a movement called the "Cardboard Challenge."
