The Maker Hub and Elon University Center for Design Thinking have partnered to create the Passport to Play initiative, which rewards students for visiting locations, interacting with social media, creating projects and learning new skills.
With the Passport to Play initiative, a student receives a stamp each time they complete a task. The more stamps students earn, the more prizes they win, including free pizza, a swag bag, an Oak House coffee card or a T-shirt design consultation. Students can pick up their passport at both Maker Hub locations at Colonnades or Downtown, College Coffee or the Farmer’s Market.
Co-curricular Catalyst with the Center for Design Thinking, Mackenzie Hahn, says, “Passport to Play’s goal is to disrupt our everyday routines and practice bringing play into our lives. Our goal is not just to bring awareness to all the amazing services The Maker Hub and Center for Design Thinking offer, but to work collaboratively to help Elon be a great place to live, learn and play.”
The Passport to Play initiative serves as an extension of the Pop-Up and Play initiative, which started last year. Both of these initiatives strive to bring awareness to the services students have access to at Elon and inspire creativity among the student body.
“We know our spaces can be intimidating to students,” says Dan Reis, who oversees the Maker Hub and is a senior instructional technologist. “We’re hoping that these small prizes available with the Passport program will be a gentle push for students to grab a friend and visit one of our locations. Getting students in the door and talking with our great student consultants is the end goal.”
Anyone who collects enough stamps to earn a prize will be entered into a drawing for a $50 gift card to Tangent Eat + Bar. The winner will be announced at College Coffee on Nov. 30.
