Free, fun activities for

Recyclabots banner


With schools closed across the UK, we want to ensure we are still able to teach children about metals and the importance of recycling. ‘Recyclabots’, our free schools programme brought to you in partnership with Currys PC World, aims to teach younger generations about metals and recycling and to inspire children to make positive environmental changes. We have developed a series of free interactive workbooks that can be downloaded weekly, so kids can still learn about metal recycling from home.
