FROM RECYCLABOTS – INSPIRING THE NEXT GENERATION OF RECYCLERS
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.
Recyclabots Week 14 free activity
It’s Week 14 of our free Recyclabots downloads! Now that children have learnt a lot about metal recycling and the different techniques and machines we use, we want them to design their own metal recycling site. Share your designs using #Recyclabots or email them to firstname.lastname@example.org
