Inventions 3-5

MP4 Week 5 & 6

Carbon Footprint Results & Trash Tracker Results!

The results are pouring in!
  • So far it would take over 250 earths to support just us!
  • Paper is what we throw away the most!
  • Next, is plastic!
  • Third is food waste!

So What Can We Do To Help?

Upcycling

Let's Start Upcycling!

As Inventors We Can:
  • Solve a problem: Reduce our Carbon Footprint & Help the environment!
  • Be Creative: Make cool stuff!
  • Share our ideas: Make cool stuff for Mother's Day or to help the earth!

Start You upcycle collection!

Instead of throwing away your boxes, magazines, plastic containers, etc why not keep a few to have on hand when you want to invent!
