6 R’s Project

Thursday 17th May 2018

Year 10 students have recently taken part in a mini project. The project was based on the 6 ‘R’s; recycle, reuse, rethink, refuse, repair and reduce.  Students were tasked to bring in used cans and using a pin tool, punched holes into the can whilst following the printed design. Finally, they secured battery operated flickering tea-lights inside to give them a candle effect. 

Students were fully engaged and really enjoyed seeing their end results. I think they look great. Well done!
