In today’s disposable society, you could make a mountain of what some people throw away. But like Oscar the Grouch, we love garbage! With Junkyard Warriors, you get to make cars, catapults and all sorts of contraptions from the types of items others waste!
In this eco-friendly S.T.E.M. program, students will recycle common everyday items to create motorized mechanisms and racers. The program is divided into a series of challenges where students will compete to accomplish specific tasks and goals. Each challenge combines environmental principles, physics, and basic elements of design and engineering. After mastering the basic concepts, students will face a final challenge to earn the title Junkyard Warrior and become protectors of the environment.
