Our Innovative Solution to solving Battery Pollution
We want to make battery recycling fun! We want to build creative mazes and ask kids to race their used batteries down the maze as some sort of game. It will be so much fun for them, so kids will purposely collected them and bring them to the maze. Having said that, the end of the maze will always be an enclosed battery recycle bin. We have started a contest at our school to see which class build the most creative maze, and which class can recycle the most batteries. All students from our school will bring the used batteries from home and use them to vote for the best design. We have connected with a sponsor called Call2Recycle, the largest battery recycling non-profit organization in North America.
Our Future Steps
That is only the first step. We are currently in discussion with a few local schools to run our pilot contest. It can become an annual event for the school. We are expanding to 30 other schools.
