For an Earth Day science project, please send in CLEAN recyclable materials, such as plastic bottles, empty food boxes, egg cartons, plastic food containers, paper towel tubes, jar lids, etc. (Note: please avoid sending in glass items as they could break. Also, please be mindful of any cans or other metals with sharp edges.)
We can also use some strong tape to hold the robot together.
