Announcing: Whee CreATe

ARE YOU LOOKING TO INSPIRE CREATIVE AND CRITICAL THINKING and PROVIDE ENRICHMENT OPPORTUNITIES FOR YOUR STUDENTS?

 

free virtual program where children and youth from ages 6-18 can use their creativity to solve problems, tackle challenges, and create works of art.  Check it out here: https://wheecreate.wcu.edu

 

Every month, beginning October 1, 2021 and running through March 2022, two challenges will be posted.  Participants are welcome to complete one or both of the challenges and each entry will receive feedback and comments from other participants, as well as university faculty, teachers, etc.

 

At the completion of the program (April 2022) all participants will receive a personalized certificate of completion, and prizes will be awarded in the following categories:

o    Most creative invention (in 3 age groups)

o    Most creative artistic expression (spoken, performance, visual) (in 3 age groups)

o    Overall creativity (to compete in this category, participants must have posted for at least four different challenges.)

o    Most creative use of materials found at home
