STEMvironment-Thursday: The Power of Recycling

Today in the Technology strand, students were placed in the role of Environmental Engineer and asked to apply the principles of recycling to making paper. If your student has brought home the paper in a plastic bag it still needs to dry. Remove it from the bag and leave it overnight. When the paper is completely dry it will feel hard and brittle

 

Ask your student:

How many times can paper be recycled?

What uses less energy: making new paper or making paper from recycled material?
