STEM – Recycle, Reuse & Repurpose
Explore distinctive ways to recycle, repurpose and reuse some of those common household items. Create a STEM Activity by reusing or recycling items that may have been sent to the recycle center, garbage dump, or landfill.
Participants will utilize a variety of techniques to transform these materials into useful or attractive items for their classroom. They will make use of and name several recycled materials that will help enhance children’s personal and public awareness of environmental issues, including the benefit of reducing, reusing, and recycling materials. When creating the STEM activity, participants will include specific learning styles and connect the activity to a state standard.
