Come join Leading Force Energy & Design Center on Friday May 5 for
West Valley Freshman's Biology class What Would Grandma Do? open house
West Valley freshmen were asked to consider all the garbage that Americans produce every day and brainstorm how that trash could potentially be upcycled instead of ending up in a landfill. In the past, Americans used most everything they bought. If a product came in a jar, the jar would be used to store things rather than tossed in the garbage can. Past generations did not know that what they were doing would today be called upcycling or repurposing. Upcycling is the process of converting waste materials or useless products into new materials or products of better quality. Using waste materials, students were asked to create a new usable product and market their creation to their class.
We have asked these students to present projects at our May First Friday Open House.
Set up like a gallery opening, students will display and answer questions about their projects throughout the evening.
At the end of the evening Yakima’s Maker Space representatives will be at Leading Force giving a brief presentation and offering to take guests over to their facility for a tour. Students, parents and guests will be able to see all that this wonderful facility has to offer our valley.
Please join us as we support our valley’s science students in their efforts to consider ways to make our world a cleaner, less wasteful place.
