Trash To Treasure!

The Business of Upcycling 

Esssential question:
How do I design a functional and marketable product from materials that are often considered trash?

Students are eager to get started and were given the task to come up with some ideas of what they might be able to create from metal baseball bats, wooden pallets and stools from the old Meservey Science labs. Our group will be heading to local transfer stations to observe what other people throw out and make decisions on what we might be able to make from items we find and possibly collect. Part of their assignment for Friday's meeting was to create a Pinterest account to become more familiar with what ideas and products are being created to sell.

Can we make something functional that could be sold on ebay or craigslist? We think so!
Stay tuned for more updates.
